My understanding is that there is evidence for this for 2 yrs after an MI. Is there any evidence for using b blockers beyond that . via NLH Question Answering Service

I have taken Atenolol since 1995, since I
have lost 80 #'s and walk 4 miles a day,
Dr. told me to stop in two weeks and don't stop walking. I went into atrial fibulation had to increase my dose from 12 grams a day to 100 grams inorder to get back in normal rymthum. Finally I am at 50 grams a day and feeling like myself again

My dad died last year at age 92. He'd taken atenelol since it was introduced and his death had nothing to do with it.

At 57 1/2, I'm on it, too, now. A good side effect was reducing my rapid pulse.

I took atenolol for many years, for SVT (heart arrhythmia), I weaned off atenolol quite some time ago when I had an ablation done for the SVT. But, I am now back on atenolol for PVCs, it does help with that.

Oh yes, forgot to say: I think atenolol regulates my PVCs pretty much. When I have them I can feel them. Feels like "butterflies" in my chest. I do notice that when I'm in an extra bit of stress, more than usual due to stressful events, the PVCs go wild. I'm very convinced that stress contributes to the PVCs. and when having that feeling, it causes stress in itself. Never have gotten totally rid of the fear that comes when my heart is rebelling. No pain though. Know what I mean, Vern?

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
