My cardiologist recently, due to some runs of supraventricular tachycardia, increased my dosage of Atenolol from 25mg a day to 50. This would have been back in September or October of '16.
Since then I have noticed I am tired more often, and I'm sort of assuming here it is due to the slower heart rate I'm experiencing on the increased dose of beta blocker. Also take 2.5mg of Nitro extended release.
I have a few very minor dizzy moments, but nothing too bad or unexpected.
When I first started atenolol at 25mg it took me a couple months or so to adjust, is my body still adjusting to the lower heart rate / blood flow?
As for the aneurysms, I am still on a watchful waiting list, and there hasn't been any significant change in aneurysm size - maybe an increase of .1cm or so. The cardiologist did label my pulmonary aneurysm as moderate to severe.
I'd like to know if I will get more of my energy back - it can sometimes make the work day drag, and as I feel more weary I find it easier to become cranky - not good in my line of work interfacing with customers on the phone all day long.
Thanks for your time,
