Sorry for the confusing post, sometimes (well, most of the time) I don't explain myself well.
I've never, ever gone to a dr and asked, "Could I try _______". My concern was adverse effects of the atenolol. Actually was hoping he'd say, "Cut down 1/2 on pills, and exercise more". Will see how it goes. Was there anything else he could try? Thats' when he suggested Lisinopril.
I'm certainly not one to tell a dr what to do, or what I want to take. I do think my parents took too many meds. Mom now passed away. Dad on 10 or 12 different prescriptions, don't want to find myself in that place.
