Hi doctor,

Could Atenolol mask any abnormality that might be found where I am not taking a beta blocker at the time of my EKG? I am a 47 year old female. I am overweight but not obese.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

For EKG, there is no need to stop beta blocker.

Yes, for Dobutamine stress echocardiogram, beta blocker needs to be stopped three days prior.

For further information consult a cardiologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/cardiologist
