Getting off of beta blockers.

Q: How do I get off of Beta Blockers? I’m currently taking Propranolol, 20 mg 3 times a day and have over 7 side effects. I’ve heard you have to wean off very slowly and carefully. I also take Captopril.

A: You should always discuss stopping blood pressure medications with your doctor. Your doctor will tell you how to taper your medicine so you don’t run the risk of a heart complication or dangerously high blood pressure. Your pharmacist also can give you advice about stopping medicine safely.
