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

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 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. ...Read more
