Re: atenolol to control vaso vagal syncope



Iwas diagnosed with VV about 9 years ago. I was first put on Lopressor, but because of the brain activity from it could not sleep, they lowered the dose and I passed out. So they then put me on atenolol 50mg., and I have not had a problem since, except for in the mornings when I first wake up, then I take the pill and soon I'm fine. I hope they find the right medication or dosage for you soon!!
