08 May 2012 I have heard stories about individuals that wrer perscibed atenolol, and there side effects , since I've been taking this drug,it has helped my blood pressure and heart rate as well, aim active and at rest my heart rate is between 65-72 beats per minute where as before the drug it was 82-95 at rest, and blood pressure was 145/90 to 95 now aim at 177/70 or at times 114/68 which was quite a change.....the drug has worked well for me ... If I could change any one thing it would be to stop the slight dizziness side effects..........
