Some people feel tired when they take beta-blockers. Depression is another possible side effect. Certain beta-blockers affect tissues in the body differently and so may be less likely to cause certain side effects. If side effects are a problem with one medicine, a different one may be substituted.The more common side effects include drowsiness or fatigue, cold hands and feet, weakness or dizziness, dry mouth, eyes and skin. Tell your doctor if you experience these or any other side effects.Hope this helpsPookie
Pookie, you were pretty right on with the general side effects for beta blockers.I have been taking them for about 15 years now. I never had any trouble with Atenolol until the doctors tried to take me off of it. I developed the jitters really bad. I take Toperal now. The one side effect which has recently become an irritation is it causes my blood pressure to fall, way below normal. With the drop in BP also comes dizziness. Beta blockers are used to treat hypertensionACE-inhibitors also cause a drop in blood pressure. Talk to your docs sooter. joy
i'm on 100 mg of atenolol per day -- and i've experienced most of the side affects at one time or another but as time goes on things get better as your body adjusts, although i still get fatigued every now and again :)
You know you're wired when...
You can take a lickin and keep on tickin.
A lot of people are and live normal lives with no problems whatsoever.
