Beta blocker overdose fatal?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Arthur Heller
42 years experience in Gastroenterology
Can be, not usually: Beta blockers can slow the heart, decrease blood pressure, cause abnormal heart rhythms (even fatal ones), cause bronchospasm (asthma/wheezing), heart failure, mental status changes, rash, allergic reactions. May require aggressive medical rx, especially if taken with other meds.
