When Should You Take Atenolol
Atenolol is a relatively long-acting (24 hours) beta-blocker. Beta-blockers as a group of medications calm or slow the heart rate down. They stop the swings in hr from stress or nerves. If someone is on a good dose of a beta-blocker and are startled, the medication suppresses the pounding of your heart. It also won't allow the hr to climb with exercise. It's used to ...Read more

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 more

Is it ok to take atenolol 12.5mg/day from mon to fri excluding weekends? After 1 year how do I stop: 6.25mg/day or 12.5mg every 2 days? For 1 week?
Currently taking Atenolol 25mg at 1:30am daily. I'm also prescribed htz 25mg. Is it ok to half the htz and just take it when needed? Dr. hasn't said.
I assume BP issues?: Atenolol slows heart rate and decr BP, but only lasts 18-20 hours. So in early evening you may have less effect. HTZ works best if there is edema. Unclear why you take 1:30am. Atenolol may work better as 12.5mgs 2X a day. I cannot say how much HTZ you need, but half is still a dose, but you need to see if your BP is controlled. Discuss with your Doctor. ...Read more

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 more
I take 25mg of atenolol and I have also tried the same dosage of tenormin. I know they are both the same but why does atenolol seem last longer for me?

What drug do you:
Mean? I am not aware of a drug in the US as Mexazolam
There is a drug called midazolam that is used mostly for sedation and preop cases. Are you using this drug for anxiety or sleep? There is probably not a problem with this together but it is not common to be taking this and use of this drug shoudl be reevaluated.
Best wishes. ...Read more
Should be but: Sedoxil can lower BP. As can atenolol. So check your BP after to make sure it is safe. Stop if you feel lightheaded. I would also suggest that a young person like you should try relaxation methods rather than take benzodiazepines for anxiety. They are very addictive. Good luck and please see you doctor. ...Read more
