For years, I've taken atenolol for high blood pressure. Was visiting with my dr yesterday, and brought up a question.
I've never been a good hill climber, and it certainly not because of where I live. .the hilly Ozarks. Do fairly well on stamina, but the hills are killer. Dr told me, atenolol slows down your heart, and prevents it from beating as fast as it would otherwise. So, when I'm hill climbing, my heart won't beat as fast as my body would like, so I can't climb as well as I should.
For the first time in my life, I'm really exercising and loosing weight, so hopefully before long, I can get off the stuff.
Anyone else experience this?
