I switched from atenolol 50 mg. once a day to inderal 160 mg once a day to control PVC's and PAC's and skipped beats. My heart rate was always between 60 and 65 on atenolol and now it runs around 100 bpm on inderal. Does this make sense or do I need a higher dose of inderal. I just had a heart XXXXXXX and everything was normal.
