TENORMIN: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Anxiety “I take these specifically for anxiety and it works like a dream for me. I wanted to go on something that was not addictive and I didn’t want anything that made me feel like a zombie. I wish more doctors would use medications like this as a first line treatment as it doesn’t take 4-6 weeks to get to a therapeutic level like antidepressants and there is not a risk of dependence like there is with benzodiazepines.”

For Supraventricular Tachycardia “I’ve been taking this medication since Mar 2015. Started out on 75mg a day and found the side affects were horrible. Tiredness, dizziness.It just became to much and couldn’t function. Doctor drop it to 50mg a day and my heart beat drops below 50bpm which is scary and blood pressure drops.”

For High Blood Pressure “Ever since taking this my throat has been swollen. I told the dr & he doesn’t think its from the Atenolol but it didn’t start until then. Its hard to sleep at night. I have horrible eye pressure and it makes me anxious. I’m hoping I can switch meds soon. It doesn’t reduce my pressure much at all.”

For Migraine Prevention “Twenty years ago (in my mid thirties) I began to suffer from excruciating headaches. My doctor put me on progesterone cream, and there was some improvement. He thought that PMS was a contributing factor. I had a cardiac arrest when I was 38. Nothing was found to be wrong with my heart, but I was going through an emotional crisis at the time. The cardiologist put me on atenolol (25 mg/day; I now take 50 mg/day). I was put on the atenolol to keep my blood pressure down and keep my heart from beating too fast in emotional situations. The upside to all this is that I have not had but a couple of migraines in 20 years, and none since the dose was increased to 50 mg.”
