I have slight hypertension and have had this for several years and managed to stay away from blood pressure medication.
I am also hypothyroid and after unsuccessful use of levothyroxine I finally found my "God" doctor and take T3 only now. I am practically normal apart from ability to lose weight.
My appt with GP last week ended up with him prescribing 50mcg of Atenolol which would not only ease slight anxiety but also bring my blood pressure down.
I am now horrified to read the effect of atenolol on the thyroid hormone and I wondered if I am safe to still go ahead with it. I have only taken 2 days worth but I certainly don;t want to put back all the good I have been able to achieve with my thyroid medication.
I welcome any advice please.
