I was on other meds for my HBP but the side effects drove me crazy. I exercise a lot and don't do well with diuretics. One doctor prescribed them any how and I was miserable. Changed doctors and they changed my medication but the new stuff just made me feel tired all the time. Another doctor and another medicine and I think we've finally got it figured out.

I am on Pravastatin as well as Atenolol,and I have been getting a numb,tingling feeling in my hands and feet. Is it possible that Atenolol may be causing this? My appetite has also increased. I wonder if Atenolol has caused this? I am concerned about this drug.

Prior to reading all the other reviews here I figured I had no issues with my use of Atenolol. I split a 25 mg tab and take the half daily. I've taken Atenolol for about 10 years now.

I'm not real happy about that.
