Severe cfs 18 yrs now hypertensive and tachycardic at times. Am on losartan potassium. Heard beta blocker good. Which best antihypertensive for me?

Depends

Metoprolol
Only your doctor can answer that. A beta blocker will help with tachycardia, while losartan will not. A beta blocker may worsen your fatigue as a side effect.

Have pots with hypertension, severe cfs. Which would be best safest beta blocker to try? Currently on losartan potassium 100mg but still tachycardia

Tachycardia

Chronic_fatigue_syndrome
It would be better to identify the cause of your tachycardia (T) rather than to blindly treat it with a beta blocker (B). See your physician (P) and get the answer to your question.

What effects do beta-blocker drugs have on a big presentation?

Actually may help

Fear
Performance anxiety, or colloquially, stage fright, or fear of public performances, may be mitigated by small doses of beta-blockers. Should ONLY be used under you doctor's supervision, since there are adverse effects possible for which your doctor can screen you.

Why is it that propranolol, a beta-blocker drug is given to a patient with double outlet right ventricle?

To relax the heart

Propranolol
Some patients with double outlet right ventricle have abnormally thick muscle bundles that block the flow of blood to the lungs when the heart contracts. When the blockage is severe the oxygen level in the body can drop to dangerous levels. Beta blockers such as propranolol reduce the strength of the heart's contraction allowing more blood to pass to the lungs and can improve the oxygen level.

Patients with heart arrhythmias or tachycardia are often prescribed a type of drug called a "beta-blocker". Should I be?

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmia
Individuals with rhythm disturbances that are fast, tachyarrhythmias, are sometimes given beta blockers as a first agent. These are blood pressure meds that act by lowering the heart rate and can prevent some arrthymias. These are used if someone has symptoms from the arrhythmia and overall are safe and well tolerated meds.
