Try changing Rx: In young patients who are very active and require beta blockers for control of their arrhythmias sometimes i utilize pindolol. This beta blocker has "intrinsic sympathomimetic activity" and as such won't drop the blood pressure as much but will also not make as you tired as well as being able to suppress your arrhythmias.
