I've taken this drug for 2 years, and have gotten steadily more and more short of breath when just doing menial yardwork, have also put on 20 lbs., severly tired, and dizzy.

I used to take Atenolol along with exercise and low salt diet but my BP was still 165/95 on the average. Now I take 100 mg twice daily and now average BP is 125/75. Only issue is sometimes I feel weak/tired and a little faint for about an hour in the mornings. Does not occur all the time.
