That would be 250 mg. which is a large dose. His / her heart could stop, blood pressure would fall, dizzyness. Possibly a pacemaker if he got to hospital in time. Not a good idea.

What is Atenolol? As a service-connected veteran of the Army I do not like to take things I do not know about! What happened to info where advise was free. What you still do think you make enough money? For all you know with out veterans you could very well speaking Germany or Iranian or Iraqui right now. It s happening Doctors? And us sacrificing our lives can t be something we can afford, especially against the Chinese military, who have more money, and work a monetary linked unit. So keep money out of us...many already know what will happen someday. But, you can be guaranteed one thing. I gladly die before I ever even once called you sir or mame. Born in America and served to keep it alive. And not afraid to tell you this!! Others may be afraid to say this to you, But my brother serve in the military for three saving lives how about any of you others? Maybe even one of you! Did you ever serve in the military, are you still collecting...your exhorbitant pay fee scale. All I can say is now you want to charge veterans. SHAME ON YOU!!

Hello. I think I may have accidentally taken two atenolol 100-25, the diuretic beta-blocker combo pills an hour apart. What are the things to check for? Should I just hang out near an er just in case or is it not as serious as that? If so are there some good things to do? Like stay hydrated and eat healthy portions if food? Thank you.
