I am on atenolol and my mom is on metropolol. She seems to have confusion and dizziness and i don't, just wondering if this could be the reason

Hi that could be why she is haven the dizziness but there is not much of a differnce between atenolol and metropolol they are both beta-blockers for heart cirulation and chest pain and other problems determined by your doc,so maybe she should ask to switch if the dizziness is bothersome,hope this helps

Metoprolol succinate, is a beta1-selective (cardioselective) adrenoceptor blocking agent. Atenolol, a synthetic, beta1-selective (cardioselective) adrenoreceptor blocking agent also, it depends upon the side effects of each medication, please consult your doctor/pharmacist before you start or stop to consume the drug.
