A 18-year-old male asked:

Can being born with a heart murmur that is considered normal with time, affect how beta blockers like atelonol and bystolic (nebivolol) affect your heart rythym?

No: It is unlikely that a "functional/innocent" murmur you are describing will affect your response to beta blockers. Every patient responds to new medications differently, so whatever response you are having is not likely from the previous murmur.
