Balance benefits: Generally, in any treatment you have to balance risks and benefits. Beta blockers should help your symptoms, as will avoiding (or minimizing) stimulants. Quitting smoking sound like a really good idea--in general, as well as in an effort to help your symptoms. Something to consider...

Medicine: Increase your beta blockers preferably long acting, till you get a good control of heart rate.
