fewer atenolol (Tenormin, etc) and other "beta-blocker" prescriptions for treating high blood pressure

You'll eventually see fewer atenolol (Tenormin, etc) and other "beta-blocker" prescriptions for treating high blood pressure.

On one hand, beta-blockers lower blood pressure about the same as other antihypertensive meds...lisinopril, losartan, amlodipine, etc.

But on the other hand, they DON'T prevent as many heart attacks and strokes in patients with high blood pressure.
