Then I developed splits and fissures just on my thumbs which were very painful. I thought maybe the DW liquid? So I wore gloves. Didn't help. Started to eliminate my other meds. Nothing changed. Happened to find an old prescription bottle with Sandoz as the manufacturer. Currently, my atenolol is manufactured by Avkare. Could the formulation be different and causing my thumbs to bleed, and split and never heal?
I've taken Atenolol 25mg once a day since 2006 for high blood pressure and no probs. Kept my BP down

WARNING: You mentioned you eliminated taking your other prescribed meds, this can be dangerous and is not recommended as a source for diagnosis. Contact your prescribing doc as soon as possible!
