I'm on atenolol as well, and still get palps. They tend to come on after I lay down to sleep. (not all the time though)
Usually I prop up my pillows and sleep elevated, or in the recliner until they pass.

I hate that most people have this as well! However it is good to know that we are not alone.

Thank you for giving this tip!  Palpitations freak me out and relaxing is the only thing I know of to help them! 

I've only had them twice, but I assure you the next time I'll be chugging away!!   :thumbsup:
