Just wanted to say thanks to Nic for agreeing to set up this sub-forum.

I've been on Atenolol in the past and after a break of 7 years I'm on it again this time alongside Mirtazapine and amitriptyline.

For those who are unaware of this drug, it's prescribed off-label for anxiety.

It's a beta blocker, similar to propranolol but generally taken daily, it's not beneficial on an as and when basis like propranolol.

If anyone's interested I'll keep this thread updated with my experience of this drug.

At present my resting heart rate is about 56, normally nearer 86. Like propranolol it lowers the heart rate so is useful in hypertension AFAIK.
