Common Side Effects of Atenolol

Also give your doctor a complete list of all the medicines you take, including over-the-counter pills or herbal supplements.

Your doctor may want you to make lifestyle changes in addition to taking atenolol for high blood pressure. Be sure to talk to your doctor and then follow his or her instructions carefully.

  • Change in sex drive or performance
  • Trouble sleeping
Let your doctor know if those side effects last a long time or are severe.
