Is labetalol as effective as atenolol for pots syndrome and angina? Im on Prazosin, and Verapamil but those alone dont control.

In brief: Not the same meds

Labetalol and Atenolol are not the same medications.
Labetaolol has alpha blockade too along with BB. I am assuming you have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. Would stick to a pure BB, short acting. Would talk to your MD. a pure BB will also help with angina. This is a imp discussion to have with your MD.

Prazosin may worsen POTS, as well. Agree that you should go over all this with your MD.
