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!!

Hi, doctor, I was taking lisinopril x 10 mg from Jan. 2013. I just started with high blood pressure at that time. My blood pressure could be controlled after taking medication, although sometimes, it was still high with systolic, but the diastolic was OK. Something like 140/65. During the summer, my blood pressure was fine. Only high in winter. However, the medication of lisinopril caused coughing for me, plus I got a cold this winter. That made me feel very bad. Now, my doctor recommended me to take the following (there are three opinions): Losartan x 25 mg, Atenolol x ? mg, Adalat GITS x 30 mg. What is the best one for me with my situation? I am an active woman, always go for exercises, 1 hr per day. Still working in elementary school, married, have one son, age 28. My high blood pressure is NOT SEVERE. Would you please give me some ideas? Thanks a lot.

I had an afib attack last evening and took 1 pill of atenolol 25ml. Today I have a lot of stomach cramps and bloating, is this a side effect of the medicine? I only take the pill when I really need to. I get a 5-10 episodes of afib a year. I also feel uneasy and a little out of it. -Tom

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)
