Is it less risky to double dose altenolol or miss a dose? I can't recall if i took 100 mg dose of atenolol 6 hrs ago. Should i take a dose now or not?
Skip the dose: It looks like you asked this question awhile ago, so this may not be relevant anymore, but in your case, at 6 hours, i would say to just skip the dose rather than possibly double up on it. I would recommend just checking your BP every hour or two and make sure it's not too high, then resume your normal dosing schedule. If it is too high, call your doctor. ...Read more
Took ab extra dose of Atenolol by Mistake.I take 50mg a day 25 2x But I took 75mg by Mistke will I b ok?
Monitor your symptom: In all likelihood, you will have no ill effects from the extra dose. The medicine will gradually be eliminated from you body and should be nearly gone in 1-2 days (the half-life, the amount of time it takes your body to eliminate half the amount currently in your body, is 6-7 hours). Monitor your symptoms - if your feel fatigue, dizzy, short of breath, or any unusual feelings, seek medical help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Take 25 mg of atenolol day.I've decided to stop it, been taking ever other day past 4 days. Should I start breaking dose half.Or just keep doing this?
Why take it?: I guess it depends on why this was prescribed for you in the first place! My guess it was for palpitations and not organic heart disease! If this is the case then stop the medicine at this point, if you have significant symptoms such as fainting, chest pain then please go to the hospital or contact the physician who gave this drug to you in the first place! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Currently taking Atenolol 25mg every evening at 7pm but forgot this evening and took it at 8pm. Is that ok? And can i go back to 7pm tomorrow?
Small dose: Depends on how long you've been taking it, how large you are, and the reason you were taking it (bp, arrhythmia, or angina). The dose is small and often can be stopped cold but if you hare prone to angina or arrhythmia, you're wise to taper it (take it every other day for 7 doses) before stopping it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
