In brief: BB vs ACE inhibitor

Atenolol is a generic beta blocker while coversyl is a brand name for generic perindopril which is an ace inhiibitor. They both lower blood pressure but by different methods.
Beta blockers slow down heart rate while ace inhibitors work on via hormones, renin, angiotensin & aldosterone.
