Low heart rate...: Beta-blockers are used in the treatment of high blood pressure and some forms of tachyarrythmias (ie high heart rate rhythmn problems). An overdose of these medicines typically results in low heart rate and low blood pressure, which may be life-threatening, depending on the drug and dosage ingested. It is necessary to be evaluated in the er and possibly admitted for continued cardiac monitoring.
