I'm pregnant with an arrythmia and my OB changed my beta blocker from atenolol to labetolol, however I took one labetolol this morning and it had no effect in fact I had tachy all morning. Rang the Dr and she wrote me a prescription for atenolol again and told me to take one but not take my evening tablet. So I did and I felt fine. But these evening I'm feeling a little rough and wondered if it is safe to do what I have done?
Took 1 labetolol 100mg this morning with food at 9am. At 11am took 1 25mg Atenolol because of tachy. It worked for the tachy but I am now worried that I was wrong to take two different beta blockers in the same day. I'm normally on atenolol 2 x 25mg a day (1 am and 1 pm).
