Re: [FH] Atenolol and diarrhea

I see that opinions differ regarding whether atenolol or aspirin can
cause diarrhea. It wouldn't surprise me if aspirin could, but I
haven't been able to find anything about about diarrhea as a side
effect of atenolol, except in dogs.
Diarrhea is listed as one of the side effects on the info sheet for the drug.
It can mask signs of an overactive thyroid; cause dizziness, nausea,
difficulty breathing, headaches, fatigue.
It less likely to cause diarrhea than aspirin.
