Would popping a 25 mg. atenolol, say an hour before an anxiety provoking event like a drs. visit cause the pressures to normalize while there? I have only taken meds for bp before that work to stabilize pressures after a day or two.
Does Atenolol work this quickly? Has anyone ever had severe anxiety related labile pressures? If so, how did your dr. treat it?
Also, did anyone feel worried about having to take a drug that is considered class D like atenolol. I hate that I would have to do this because of anxiety!

3 wonderful sons ages 13, 10, and 6.
Son #1 and son #2 both born at 40 weeks, both weighed above 8 lbs and both pregnancies were completely problem free.
Suddenly developed chronic hypertension immediately AFTER second son was delivered ( Blood pressure was fine during entire pregnancy, but went up right after delivery. So strange!) and have been on BP meds ever since. I was 24 yrs old at the time.
Son #3 born in 2007 at 37 weeks, 5 lbs 8 oz. Methyldopa started in second trimester.
Baby #4 due Feb. 10 2014. Praying for a healthy pregnancy!
