Is it safe to take beta blockers for pvcs if alsi have asthma?

Is it safe to take beta blockers for pvcs if alsi have asthma?

Maybe not: B-blockers result in bronchconstriction, meaning the airways tend to close whereas b-agonists tend to bronchodilate, or open the airways. So, b-blockers may result in airway closure leading to acute asthma symptoms. (note: even b-blocker eye drops can have this effect!) some b-blockers do this to a lesser extent than others so check with your doctor first. ...Read more

If you have Gilberts Syndrome is it safe to take H2 Blockers for example,Zantac (ranitidine) or Betablockers,Propranolol,Bisoprolol (Zebeta) or even Acetaminophen?

If you have Gilberts Syndrome is it safe to take H2 Blockers for example,Zantac (ranitidine) or Betablockers,Propranolol,Bisoprolol (Zebeta) or even Acetaminophen?

Should be ok: Discuss with your primary physician, but the medications listed should be ok. Gilbert syndrome is very rarely problematic. It is advisable to avoid some medications that displace bilirubin in the blood, such as sulfa drugs, salicylates, furosemide, ampicillin, and ceftriaxone (can acutely increase free bilirubin levels). Note: if Zantac (ranitidine) is for dust allergy, better options are available. ...Read more

What's to be expected? Might ventolin work at all if you have an asthma attack whilst taking beta blockers?

What's to be expected? Might ventolin work at all if you have an asthma attack whilst taking beta blockers?

Less so: Ventolin may still work but would likely be less effective. It is also important to choose a cardio-selective beta blocker if there is no other alternative. One study showed that taking a cardio-selective beta blocker reduced the fev-1 (the one-second airflow which is reduced in airway obstruction) by about 7% but made the lung more responsive to bronchodilators . Avoid beta blocker if possible. ...Read more

Im a 19 yr old on bisoprolol for a suspected heart arrhythmia but all they can find during tests is sinus tachy Is it essential to take a beta blocker?

Depends: Usually not required for physiologic ST, unless episodes are prolonged or occur often, because the rapid heartbeat does not allow enough time for the heart to fill before it contracts, so blood flow to the rest of the body is compromised. Underlying causes are treated if present (WPW - medications or ablation may be needed to control PSVT. Try: Cut down coffee, alcohol, quit smoking, get more rest ...Read more

Is a cardioselective beta blocker safe for someone with mild asthma? It is to treat pots when standing.

Is a cardioselective beta blocker safe for someone with mild asthma? It is to treat pots when standing.

Maybe: It's highly individualized and depends on the severity of your asthma and dose of the drug being used. Some people will tolerate it and some won't. Even those who do may have a worsening of their asthma following a respiratory infection months or years hence. You can always try it, stop it if necessary, and use a bronchodilator till back to baseline. ...Read more

Can i take a beta blocker as needed for palpitations? If so, which one is better? Metoprolol or bisoprolol?

Yes: If you're taking it just for palpitations, it is reasonable to take it only on an "as needed" basis. And either of those choices is fine; they are really quite equivalent. ...Read more

Why they say that it is dangerous to take beta blockers only and before alpha blockers in pheochromocytoma treatment? Is really life-threatening?

Why they say that it is dangerous to take beta blockers only and before alpha blockers in pheochromocytoma treatment? Is really life-threatening?

Yes, dangerous: Hi. Non-selective beta-blockers (e.g., propranolol) block beta-2 receptors, which mediate arterial relaxation. Pheos secrete epi and norepi, which activate alpha-1 and beta receptors. If you block vasodilatory beta-2's, then the arteries will see unopposed alpha-1 stimulation, which can cause a hypertensive crisis and stroke, death, etc. Block alpha-1 receptors first! ...Read more
