drop the atenolol but keep taking the lorsartan which is the meds that causes all the awful side effects like confusion, lightheadedness, weak or irregular heartbeat, feeling flushed , pounding heart, etc. etc. Doesn't make sense to me.

No, it doesnt make sense AND you cant just quit taking Atenolol cold turkey-you have to be weaned off it. Double check with the Dr. Let him know that it is the Losartan you have had trouble tolerating, not the Atenolol, and also point out to him that you have heard that a beta blocker like Atenolol, should not be stopped cold turkey, that you must wean off. You might want to get a second opinion from another Dr.
