Hi! No worries...taking a total of 50 mg of Atenolol in a day is still well below the max recommended dose. Your blood pressure and heart rate may drop slightly, but you should not expect any serious effects from this. Take it easy today if you feel light headed or dizzy. No other action is required.

Do you have any further questions or concerns? I am happy to help:)

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
