In reply to check out atenolol, posted by Emme on January 27, 2004, at 23:45:18

thanks for the info, i just did a search and it looks like it definately doesn't cross a easily as the others, i pasted some of what i read below. So am i understanding correctly...does this mean it will be less likely to cause deperssion?

Lipid soluble drugs such as propanolol penetrate the blood brain barrier.They may cause nightmares and vivid dreams.
Polar drugs such as atenolol less likely to penetrate the blood brain barrier.

Polar beta blockers are eliminated almost entirely unchanged by the kidney eg atenolol.
Alternative is to use a drug which is eliminated by the liver eg propanolol or metoprolol
