Beta Blockers

Beta blockers, also called beta-adrenergic blocking drugs, are medications that ease the workload on the heart. Beta blockers inhibit the response of the hormone adrenaline on the body, which slows the heartbeat and allows the heart to work more easily. Beta blockers also help the blood vessels to relax and widen, which allows more blood to flow through them. There are many types of beta blockers, including metoprolol, atenolol, and propranolol. Beta blockers are often prescribed to treat or help prevent high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythms), heart failure, and heart attack. Beta blockers may also be used to treat overactive thyroid, migraine headaches, generalized anxiety disorder., and other conditions unrelated to the heart.
