Each drug has its own characteristics and drs. Choose between them by the doc's assessment of what the patient needs. They both are effective.

Do you have any other illnesses? Both medications are effective but the side effects differ. For example, I would recommend avoid atenolol or similar medications in people with depression. Do you exercise and eat a balanced diet? You're blood pressure could be brought under control with diet and exercise and without medication if you haven't already given that approach a good trial first.
