Atenolol

Has anyone gained weight on atenolol?  
612551_tn?1247839157
I am a long time use of beta blockers and switched to Atenolol about a year ago. I did not see any weight gain, and in fact a few months after the switch I decided to lose some weight because of a problem with obstructive sleep apnea.  I lost about 10% of my weight in a couple of months, and was taking Atenolol at 25 mg twice a day during and after that period.  

The good off-subject result is the loss of weight has stopped my obstructive sleep apnea problem, which was diagnosed as "mild" to begin with.  That is I was still getting sleep, my symptoms were the troubling experience of waking up feeling like I was suffocating, guess I was.
