    I recently upped my dose of atenolol to 100 mg a day. Last night I took a
    bath, I felt so stressed out! I had just taken a 50mg dose. My heart
    started going crazy. It was so fast and so loud I could hear it echo in
    the bathroom. I really thought this was it, I live alone and didn’t really
    have anyone to call at the time. I considered calling 911, but eventually
    was able to go to sleep. I’m scheduled for RAI on Nov 25.
    any advice on the fast heartrate?

    I’m another me too. Only in my case I also have low blood pressure and
    a prolapsed mitral valve. So, the cardiologist is taking care of the
    rapid heartbeat. I always take 37 1/2 mg atenolol, but now I take
    200mg. Maybe you need to up the dose. My cardio says as long as my
    systolic (the upper number) doesn’t go below 80 I can take what I need.
    It also helps so much with the tremors.

    I’m doing the PTU. Today is day 15 and I finally feel better!
    Good luck! -Donna
