Have been taking 50mg atenolol. What is the dosage comparison to switch to cartia xt?

They are completely different drugs that have totally separate mechanisms of action. There is no comparison dose but all I can say is that the atenolol at 50 mg is a moderate dose.

I know they are different. My doctor wants me to change from atenolol to cartia xt. The last time I tried it I had shortness of breath so am leary about trying it again. I was told i could just stop the atenolol and start tacking cartia but am not so sure that is correct.
