Beta blocker: Patients have different reactions to different doses of drug. The toxic effects of beta blockade are also different depending on the underlying cardiovascular state. In other words a patient with a 'weak heart' will likely have more serious effects with lower doses of beta blocker than a patient with normal heart.

Probably: Hi. Many things can be fatal depending on how much is taken. If this is a call for help, please call your suicide prevention hotline.

Why do you ask?: You can die from too much of anything, even water. If you are thinking of harming yourself, or just don't see the point in life anymore, please get help---call a hotline, go to an ED.
