My cousin has high blood pressure been on atenolol 50 mg for 5 months & now on 8 mg of canderstartan for 4 weeks she has started to feel quite dizzy occasionally has joint pains headaches & quite severe abdominal swelling, could all this be related to either one of those tablets, has anyone experienced those side effects? All answers will be greatly received..

Those medications do have side effects that show some the symptoms you have described so could be the recent addition may be too high a dosage.
Unforunately I am not medically trained to give advise on dosages of changing medication. I would recommend you cousin go to their GP to discuss the side effects they are having and to see what they recommend.
