I've been experiencing increased side effects, allergic in nature over past year with Atenolol. Tried to transition from Atenolol to Bystolic on 10-1-14 but it drove BP & Pulse ↑↑ for me. Im normal ly 107-70 to 120/80 BP & Pulse of 70s-80s. By 4p 10-3-14 Bp was in 150s & Pulse 136. Cardio said Stop Bystolic immediately, go bacj to Atenolol. Now having bad side effects but BP/Pulse lower. I have 3.125mg Coreg & want to transition to it
Can you transition from 25mg Atenolol to 3.125mg Coreg within same day or next day?

- coreg, heart failure, high blood pressure, anxiety, left ventricular dysfunction, ventricular tachycardia, myocardial infarction, atenolol, congestive heart failure, hypertension
Take the atenolol one day and coreg the next.
I am personally squeamish about switching so quickly from one to another, for me that's led to many serious consequences. I always suggest consulting with your Dr, not just to keep him up to speed, but to be assured it is safe to do so with your unique circumstance (only known by your Dr) being considered.
