In brief: Asthma and BP meds

Beta blockers can induce an asthma attack.
A physician may have one try these medications with a few trial doses to see if they affect one's asthma. Ace-inhibitors can cause a cough and while this cough is not necessarily asthma, it can be confused with asthma or, in the case of unstable airways, may trigger asthmatic symptoms. Patients always need to their physicians if they have asthma.
