Those Of You Who Have Gone Off Your Beta Blockers Like Atenolol, Did You Go Through Withdrawals?

Those Of You Who Have Gone Off Your Beta Blockers Like Atenolol, Did You Go Through Withdrawals?

My doctor has agreed to let me go off my med atenolol, can't handle the side effects, I'm doing it slowly, but worried about having withdrawals. Want to try some natural methods, already started magnesium taurate and acupuncture. Thank you for your input

I just recently started on Metoprolol after ablation and pacemaker installation. So far, no signs of side effects. Time will tell. I'm on lots of meds but doctors and big pharma will make money long after I'm dead. So why should I rebel when I'm trusting my life with them.

I think you are right about doctors and pharmaceutical companies. I'm taking Eliquis and it is expensive but, what am I going to do. Can't risk a stroke. At 85 I'm just buying a little more time.

You now I have found that Doctors are in bed with the Pharmaceutical companies and if they can sell you more medication than you need they make more money for themselves.
I have always been fit I played pro soccer for 12 years my heart rate was about 38-42 beats per minute blood could easily form a clot then. They are saying we are worried about the ryrlthym now we are older why did it not happen when we were younger? It's all a lie I am totally off all my medication now for 2 months and I have never felt better.

At one time I was on atenolol but after tests and stuff, they put me on Metropolol. No side effects that I can remember. Everyone is different so, what might be bad for one is good for another.

I was on atenolol back in the early 2000s but got off it because it caused asthma and other side effects and I'm still suffering to this day
