Been taking (NEW) Diltiazem 180 mg 24 hr time release caps as well as tapering atenolol (was 100mg daily) had horrible symptoms so back on 25mg of atenolol with the diltiazem... can they be taken at the same time or should they be spaced a bit? For svt and BP control.

Hello, Hyperdi! How are you?

If your doctor has advised you to stop the Atenolol, then you should follow their instructions for stopping it. Taking both of them could cause your heart rate and blood pressure to go too low.

What type of symptoms did you experience? You were likely experiencing some minor withdrawal effects, as well as new side effects from the Diltiazem.

Typical side effects to is, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, dry cough and increased urination.

The withdrawal effects I experienced while coming off the Atenolol were far from minor I was taken off of it far to fast & any amount of physical activity caused SVT...was so dizzy I could barely stand ..tremors, headache, extreme fatigue...ect. also missed 3 work days and believe me I never do...and I am following the Doc's instructions except the were no clear if I should take both meds at the same time or space them...

Then please ask your doctor, you should never be afraid to ask them such questions, it's their job.

And yes, coming off of one of these types of medications too fast can cause those types of rebound effects. However, they are usually mitigated by the medication they are replaced with.

How are you feeling, now?
