Atenolol makes me a little lightheaded 50mg a day. But I get even more dizzy if I opt to take a little extra dose of 25mg. Why is this?

In brief: Pressure drop

it is possible that the medication make sure blood pressure drop which can result in lightheadedness.
See your doctor for a possible change to the medication.
