A 36-year-old member asked:
Is it safe to take beta-blocker before general anaesthesia?

Beta blocker: Discuss this with your physician. When you are on beta blockers as a regular med your doc will likely want to continue them. Beta blockers for noncardiac patients before/during surgical procedures are presently somewhat controversial and your docs input should be sought for you.
