Advice & Tips: Because I only take this med once a day it is quite easy to incorporate it into my daily routine. Also, it is a relatively inexpensive med so it won't break the bank or impact my finances adversely. Another advantage of this med is that it lowers my BP. And, while I do not have HTN, I do have normal pressure glaucoma, and the little bit that this impacts my BP is helpful for keeping the glaucoma in check.

Advice & Tips: I take Atenolol only when I need it for an internal restlessness (akathisia), which makes me want to get up and move. It works GREAT, when I start feeling the restlessness coming on I take two to four Atenolol tablets and soon the restlessness is gone.
