Hi doctor,

Since two years my mom is taking Atenolol for hypertension. Her dose is 50 mg per day which she eats half in the morning and half at night. About a week ago, her blood pressure became low and today it was 104/65 mmHg and pulse rate is 51. I would be very grateful for your help. Thanks.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have carefully worked through your case and want to assure that I will manage your mother's case.

  • It sometimes happens with hypertensive patients and we need to adjust dosage time to time.
  • She should take only 25 mg Atenolol or half the tablet of 50 mg in the morning with breakfast and no medicine at night.
  • Please give me a feedback after couple of days on how she is doing.
