Blood Clot
I am on Metoprolol Succinate, 25 mg twice a day for BP control. My pulse can go down to the 50's but it is mostly between 60 and 80 during the 12 hours till next dose. I recently had an eschemic stroke and I am wondering if it contributed to the clot, along with Hydrochlorothiazide I was taking.

Atenolol
My Mother takes Atenolol, but she uses it for blood pressure , which is what that particular medicine is used for the most (Cardiovascular Treatment). It can also be used to treat migraines, but you may need to keep an eye on your blood pressure, it may be getting too low and causing your dizziness. Here is a couple of site's that may be useful to you, http://headacheandmigrainenews.com/atenolol-tenormin-for-migraine/ and www.drugs.com. I hope this is useful to you! Best of luck!
