I am a person that hates to take medicine due to the side effects. (i literally have anxiety) However, this experience has been ok for me. I have not been bothered by side effects. I do believe that I have gained a few pounds.

I feel that my bp went down too fast too soon. I do not think my bp was so high to put me on this strong medication. I have met with my doctor several times about this. I don't like the naseau that I am experiencing.

It works well but the side effects are a gain in weight. Slows heart beat and energy level.

Using this medication has brought my bloodpressure down considerably. It works for me.

Comment from: LEH, 45-54 on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: January 17

I feel tired a lot. Have ringing in ears since I started taking tenormin 6 years ago. My legs hurt when I walk and feel heavy. The generic form (atenenol) caused so much pain in my legs I had to switch to tenormin. I have gained about 20 lbs since I started using this drug. My annual blood work is all normal,thank goodness,but recently colesterol level slightly elevated so am walking 30 mins at least 4 times a week now.My dosage started at 50 mg a day. I had to half the pill and take it twice a day for best effectiveness.

This medication is easy to use and it has lowered my blood pressure. The only complaint I have is that I have gained 10 lbs. while on this medication.

Comment from: Dave, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 10+ years Published: May 01

I took this drug for maybe 30 years. In that time I quit smoking, drinking and lost 60 lbs. Recently I complained of shortness of breath. Since my B/P has been good for many years my doctor weaned me off of it. As a result I no longer have shortness of breath, my heart rate went from high fortys to mid sixtys, no more fatique, my GERD got better, not so cold all the time, more alert, and my B/P is still very good. So, change in life style was a good move.

I have been taking atenolol 100 mg/day for 10 years. It has done a great job of controlling my HBP, but I have long suspected it of some unpleasant side effects. Recently I have tapered off and trying to discontinue it totally, my doctor has switched me to lisinopril 40 mg/day. The very first day I cut my dose in half I noticed my acid reflux was much better. I have had bad reflux for several years and the last two days I have taken nothing at all for acid. I have coughed from acid for years before finding out the cause, now I know the cause of the acid. I also have long suspected sexual side effects from atenolol, but time will tell if that is verified. My sex life has become nothing for the last several years. That has caused great frustration and depression in itself. This medicine does a great job lowering blood pressure, but be very cautious and attentive if using it. It can cause lots of unwanted problems too.
