Other BP meds: There are many alternative families of BP meds that can be used in asthmatic patients. Even if one has a medical condition where a beta blocker is the best choice, there are some of that family that affect asthma less than others. Discuss options with fp/allergist/ pulmonologist/internist.

See below: Limit the beta agonists as much as possible, if your hypertension is really sensitive. There are multiple other asthma medications, e.g. Inhaled steroids, leukotriene inhibitors, anticholinergics, that do not affect blood pressure. If this doesn't work, there are medications to control hypertension too, many of them do not affect asthma; as well as diet, most notably avoiding salt.
