Atenolol Help

Updated
nelus Says:

Dear all Medical Practioners in this Forum.

I am having a mild Hypertension with 130/90 at the most. I had been prescribed by the Doctor with Atenolol 50mg/day and Nifidepine 3x daily. I did read before that Atenolol tend to give you a Psoarasis and this had appeared on me somewhere at my right leg. Can I change this prescription later? Please advise me as to what are the best remedial actions to be taken before things get out of control.

Thank You.

Sorry, there are no medical practitioners on this site.

However, if the drug is causing unwanted and unpleasant side effects, you should discuss it with your doctor. There are other options available that you can use.

I stopped taking Atenolol on my own 2-3 weeks ago when I read about possible problems resulting in my decision. Can I start the medicine again? My blood pressure has increased.
