Ideally, you should see if atenolol can be tapered down further and see if you need it for BP control; after eclampsia or preeclampsia
, a proportion of patients continue to have sustained high blood pressure
(less than 30%). Therefore, it will be important in your case to find out after giving you a chance of tapering down and finally being off. The best method for evaluation once off medications would be an ambulatory blood pressure
monitoring. Nevertheless, even if you don't end up now with a diagnosis of high blood pressure, you need regular medical follow up, since some patients do develop earlier hypertension
if they had these obstetric disorders, which are now recognized by us cardiologists as an additional risk factor for heart disease
for women later on in their lives.
Hope it helps.
