Hi, atenolol could cause tiredness in about 26% and fatigue in around 6% people who take the med, joint pains have not as such been a reported side effect of atenolol.
If you think that this is too bothersome you could seek advice from the doc/pharmacist to change your med., there are many other beta blockers available.
Take care, best wishes!
I see you list osteoarthritis also, & that is most probably your joint pain. I have it in every joint in my body, & they all hurt! I also take atenolol for A-Fib & it hasn't contributed to my joint pain & have been on it for years & years... Mary
After being on Atenolol for about 10 days, I began to have pain in my hip joints. It got so bad, I could hardly walk. The doctor took me off of Atenolol a couple of days ago and the pain appears to be going away. I think Atenolol was most certainly the cause of my joint pain
I had been on atenolol 50mg for about 5 years.. 2 weeks ago I started taking carvedilol for kidney function reasons.. my joints, bones, and muscles have all stopped aching.. and now that my dose is correct my blog pressure is fantastic.
