Drug Interactions With Atenolol

Digoxin
Combining atenolol with digoxin may cause a dangerously slow heart rate (bradycardia). You may need to be monitored very closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, it is not recommended to combine atenolol with digoxin.
 
Methacholine
It is very dangerous to combine methacholine with atenolol. Doing so could cause severe, asthma-like breathing problems that are not easily corrected. These medications should never be combined.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
NSAIDs may make atenolol less effective for lowering blood pressure. Check with your healthcare provider before combining atenolol with an NSAID. This is most important for people who regularly or chronically take NSAIDs.
 
Other Beta Blockers
Atenolol is a beta blocker and should not be combined with other beta blockers, as this may increase the risk of serious side effects.
 
Reserpine
Combining reserpine with a beta blocker can increase the risk of serious side effects. You may need to be monitored very closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, it is not recommended to combine atenolol with reserpine.
