Helpful: Beta blockers, such as metoprolol, are a part of the treatment of hyperthyroidism. Beta blockers block the effects of increased thyroid hormone on the heart and circulation. Once hyperthyroidism is controlled, then the beta blockers can typically be discontinued.

Hyper or hypo ?: It's ok with hyperthyroidism (over active thyroid) if your heart rate was elevated.

Answer correct: I'm still a user of propranolol?
