Atenolol + adderall problems

My doctor prescribed both Atenolol + adderall. I haven't started yet because I have a few questions. In the past when I took adderall I felt physically beat up every time I would wake up in the morning. Although it gave me energy it also caused me to be limp. ED was an issue on adderall. My doctor said that atenolol will prevent if from causing ED issues cause too high norepinephrine causes ED. He says atenolol will modulate norepinephrine so it does not go too high.

So here are the two main concerns with this combo.

1) ED - can't have that or I won't even bother with this treatment.
2) Not being able to loss weight while on Atenolol

I'm in need of losing weigh and just signed up for cross fit training classes. If atenolol prevents my heart rate from going up even while on adderall for my ADHD then how can I lose weight?

Should I ask for another medication instead?
