In brief: Can take BB

Beta blockers may be the best choice since the other available medications options can lead to physical dependance.
A trial of cardioselective beta blockers should be okay in an asthmatic. Non-medicinal therapies such as exercise, yoga, meditation, etc. Should be tried first.

In brief: Anxiety

You may be benefited by meditation or similar therapy.
Beta blockers can sometimes be given to asthma patients without causing reactive airways to get worse.
