Sounds like my experience of the med having a profound effect on my Central Nervous System and causing a most uncharacteristic depressed state with pronounced fearfulness. I am taking far less now and my pressure and pulse are holding. I am still somewhat nervous at times of the day such as afternoon but I practice medication to ease that. I have read many posts about the tough to live with side effects of this drug. You posted in June so I am hoping his MD had addressed what sounds like dep

Has anyone experience heart- Palpitations if you miss a dose?
100 mg  |  December 2, 2014
My Mother takes Atenolol, but she uses it for blood pressure , which is what that particular medicine is used for the most (Cardiovascular Treatment). It can also be used to treat migraines, but you may need to keep an eye on your blood pressure, it may be getting too low and causing your dizziness. Here is a couple of site's that may be useful to you, http://headacheandmigrainenews.com/atenolol-tenormin-for-migraine/ and www.drugs.com. I hope this is useful to you! Best of luck!
