I took propranolol for several years, as needed, for palpitations. Then I switched to atenolol because it worked better. I don't have a problem with nightmares, except the occasional ones I still get that I'm taking a final that I haven't studied for or that I'm still working at a despised job that I quit years ago.

Beta-blockers can disrupt sleep by suppressing nighttime melatonin production. This can be ameliorated by taking melatonin supplements.

Atenolol disrupts my sleep less than propranolol did.
