I used to take 25mg Atenolol and it controlled my blood pressure well and I didn't have any side effects. I then was taken off of it by my doctor as it was such a minimal amount. Unfortunately a couple of years later it was found that my blood pressure was up again. When going back to my GP, they prescribed me Atenolol and was put on Ramipril instead. I'm now on 10 mg, which still didn't control my blood pressure and so Losartan was also prescribed. I have several side effects though from these. I'm 39 and I just want to go back on Atenolol, but twice have been told that it isn't given to "younger" people because it affects your pulse rate. Anyone know of any other reason why it wouldn't be given to someone of my age? Sorry for the long post, any helpful comments gratefully received
