In brief: Tenormin (Atenolol)

Dizziness, lightheadedness, tiredness, nausea may occur; may reduce blood flow to hands/feet, causing them to feel cold. Tell doctor right away if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: very slow heartbeat, severe dizziness, fainting, trouble breathing, blue fingers/toes, mental/mood changes (confusion, mood swing, depression). Best regards.
