Yes, I was on them for years after a heart attack
, but started getting terrible side effects. The doctor took me off them and I am on another beta blocker
. Diltiem( Timolol
Maleate). I never had any reactions from the withdrawal of Atenolol
, and I get on well with these others which I have been on for about four years now. The advice is to get off Atenolol. I expect you will be put on to some other beta -blocker ,as I was. Good health.
