Switching from Bisoprolol and Amiodarone to Atenolol

Just coming off Bisoprolol and Amiodarone and going back to Atenolol. I currently have bad problems with sleeping as I wake up at 5am. What could cause this problem? ## Even when you don't abuse a medication, and aren't addicted to it, you do develop a tolerance to anything you take for awhile, so it is normal to experience some withdrawal effects when coming off of it, you can also experience side effects from going back on the Atenolol, even if you took it, previously, and both of these can include trouble sleeping, as well as blood pressure changes, dizziness, and heart rate changes. It may take a few weeks, before things settle back down, and your sleeping schedule improves. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for advice will try and be patient with the Aten...

Taking telma and atenolol together for hypertension

I am age 70 and taking Telma 40 but my blood pressure is not under control (160/110). I have scarring in my lungs and reduced lung function. I get easily tired. Can I take Atenolol also (along with using Telma 40) for reducing my blood pressure? ## Has your doctor told you to take both of them? Multiple medications are often prescribed to help lower someone's blood pressure as fast and as safely as possible. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Are you on any other medications? ## Can I take Atenolol 50mg instead of Telma 40 for treating hypertension? I'm taking Telma 40 now and would like to switch. ## Can I take telma H and atenolol together at the same time.

High Blood Pressure I Am On Pharmapress 20 Mg And Atenolol 50mg For My Bloodpressure Is It Ok Not To Take A Waterpill Now Ridac Watge Pill Dr Took Awa

My name Gloria. 75 years. Have High blood pressure For years prescribed Pharmapress 20 mg. Atenolol 50mg and Ridac water pill. Dr took away Ridac and replaced it with Amlodipine5mg once a day. My ankles look swollen and i am putting on weight. Dr said the Ridac takes away the Calcium out of my bones. I really feel I should be taking the waterpill. Please advice urgently. Thankyou. ## Hi Gloria, Sorry to hear about your situation with Amlodipine. "swelling of the hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs" is listed as a general side effect of this medication. So fortunately, you may have to talk to your doctor about discontinuing it anyways if the swelling doesn't subside. Hopefully then, he might reconsider putting you back on the water pill with a calcium supplement. There are als...

Atenolol 25mg marked Z & 65 is no longer supplied by CVS. Label say Mfr.: M'Ckrodt Spec not available @ Walgreen nor Rite Aid. What drug store selling this now? ## i just pick up my fist persciption atenolol 25 mg from cvs with z-65 on it. are these pill still good. ## If you just picked them up fresh, then they are fine. They just might still have had a stock left, and haven't had to open the new supply, yet.

What other manufacturers product have you tried?

GG 269 round white tablet

What is a small white round tablet with GG 269 on it? ## I believe the original imprint posted here is incorrect. There are a couple of possible tablets which are likely what is being asking about. The first one is a round white tablet with GG 296 on it. That is Loratadine 10 mg (NDC 0781-5077). It's an antihistamine "used to temporarily relieve the symptoms of hay fever (allergy to pollen, dust, or other substances in the air) and other allergies." [1] Inactive ingredients: - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato And the second one is a round white tablet with imprint GG 264. This is Atenolol 100 mg (NDC 0781-1507), which is a medication "used alone or in combination with other medications to trea...

Atenolol - Teva or Zydus?

Which is better for Atenolol? Teva or Zydus? Which works better? Which has less side effects? Teva is a smaller pill than Zydus. ## Hello Grammy, Both brands should have the same side effects because Atenolol is the active ingredient and Teva/Zydus are only the brands. Every person reacts to medication uniquely and thus each person is going to have to decide which brand works best for them. Although they share the same active ingredient, often brands will have small differences such as size, inactive ingredients, shape, coating etc. I will provide you with some of these details I sourced from the NIH so you can make a more informed decision on which you would prefer to take. Teva 25mg size: 6mm Inactive ingredients: - Anhydrous Citric Acid - Croscarmellose Sodium - Magnesium Stearate - ...
