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.

Advice & Tips: The only problem I had was when I was switched to Atenolol and was prescribed it at my old dosage, 200mg twice a day; I slept constantly. When I called the doctors' office and checked and found out it was doubled, and was put on half the dose, I was fine after a couple of weeks.
