Hello annerre rita. I read up on your question. In regards to the doses, I cannot comment for I am not a doctor. However, I searched several sources that I use (aside from this site) and found nothing to suggest that Atenolol leaves one with a dry mouth. You could report it to the manufacturer that you believe it to be a side effect, or to the FDA. Best of wishes to you, pledge
