I'm have a new born baby and I need to start on blood pressure meds what is the effects on nursing and taking atenol?
This is taken from https://www.drugs.com/pro/atenolol-tablets.html - official FDA information
"... Nursing Mothers
Atenolol is excreted in human breast milk at a ratio of 1.5 to 6.8 when compared to the concentration in plasma. Caution should be exercised when Atenolol is administered to a nursing woman. Clinically significant bradycardia has been reported in breast fed infants. Premature infants, or infants with impaired renal function, may be more likely to develop adverse effects."
There are other beta blockers which may be better. Talk with your doctor.
