I have palpitations and irregular heart beat my docotr prescribed atenolol to take one if it happened again. Is it safe to take like this ?

Atenolol will slow out your heart rate and control the palpitations but you must take it every day. Skipping a dose can cause rebound palpitations. I would start at 25mg. ...Read more
