My almost 9 month old needs to take beta blockers for her hemangioma, I am very worried about this drug, can this cause major negative side effects?
Hemangioma: Beta blocker drug Propranolol is being widely used for treatment of hemangioma. Treating doctor decides depending on the size, location and severity of the hemangiona. Smaller ones needs only follow up. The side effects can be: lowering of blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar; cold extremities, restless sleep, constipation. The other important side effect can be bronchospasm or wheezing.See 1 more doctor answer
Can I take my beta blockers (metoprolol 12, 5 mg) daily together with my much needed paroxetine (20 mg daily)? Any side effects or something else? TU
Ok with caution: The combination can increase the effect of metoprolol by slowing its metabolism (breakdown) in the liver. Too much metoprolol can cause low blood pressure and low heart rate, with dizziness or fainting as a result. However, 12.5 mg of metoprolol is a low dose, so your doctor may have already taken this into account, & is counting on the paroxetine to increase the beta blocker's effectiveness.
Which beta-blockers are least likely to cause CNS side effects? I'm having nightmares on Coreg (Carvedilol).
Blood brain barrier: Atenolol is less likely to cause CNS side effects because it is less likely to penetrate the "blood-brain barrier."
Variable: What is the most beautiful color? What is the most lovely symphony? The most delicious food? See my point?
Depends: If the concern is related to extra cardiac beta blocking effects then the cardioselective beta blockers have better side effect profile.
Few days (depends): Adverse effects of meds are related to their half life in your body. Long acting drugs, like atenolol, may take a few days to get out o your system. Buti may also depend on the side effect, concomitant medications, and other underlying conditions.

Generally, does any diurectic mimic the most common and unwanted side effects like those of a beta blocker?
Not really: These two meds are unrelated and generally cause different side effects.

Which beta blocker has the least side effects and is the safest and best tolerated? I have Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome & can't find a suitable one
Varies: All beta blockers have similar side effects but affect different people in different ways. Talk with your doctor about trying Nadolol or atenolol. At your age with wpw, I would consider an electrophysiology study (eps) for risk stratification and possible catheter ablation. That could eliminate the need for beta blockers.See 1 more doctor answer

I always feel lightheaded and headache almost every day! Currently I'm on beta blocker and propafenone. Side effects from my meds?

Anxiety attack at work went to ER asked for a beta blocker for perf anxiety given lorazapam instead not sure why, gave me bad side effects. Took 2 mgs?
Anxiety: It sounds like the er doctors were trying to help you with your chief complaint: the anxiety attack you were experiencing. Ativan (lorazepam) can help this, with sufficient dose. You must have been quite anxious, and they wanted the medicine to be effective. A beta blocker would have had no effect on your existing anxiety, but can prevent peripheral anxiety symptoms. Your doctors clearly knew this.See 1 more doctor answer
