What's the question?: Are you asking whether the Rx program is ok? Ideally a more cardioselective beta blocker is preferred over propranolol when you suffer from asthma since this tends to block some of the action from your bronchodilator. However if propranolol is the only beta blocker that works, the risk/benefit ratio may outweigh the asthma risk.
