I have been on Atenolol for the past six years. I was prescribed this for a high heart rate. It worked well the first five years. But, from the last year, it has ruined my life. I have no energy. I get light headed and dizzy. I am on 100 mg a day. I am not sure what to do.

Thank you for your response. Usually, my blood pressure is 120/75 mmHg and sometimes it is 130/70. My pulse is usually high in the morning, but when I take Atenolol, it lowers to about 75. I had two echocardiograms in the last six years and nothing showed up. It was then determined that being a big guy my heart just beats a bit faster. I also take Edarbyclor for my blood pressure.
