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.
Don't forget to consider whether your mother is on any other medication as well. Also, could this be related to an underlying condition? You should talk to her doc, if possible, or if she is able, have her ask.
If you read the side effects of this drug, I believe you will find those symptoms there from this drug. For me, it affects my leg, knee and hip muscles and causes a lot of pain, difficulty in walking, so I will not be using it.
