I can't balance about an hour +/- 5 min. p taking atenolol 50 mg 2/per day. I also have visual difficulties p/wards. I have had a horrific fall which caused a concussion & broken rib.
I have not being on that medication but all I can tell you that most of this medications lower your pulse and your blood pressure therefore you will experience some dizziness, I have change from Metropolol to Diltiezim for the same reason. Ask your doctor if your symptoms are not to severe could the doses be reduced. Drink allot of liquids it helps . I hope you feel better.
