My father recently had valve replacement surgery. He is on Beta Blockers which are causing him to have tremors and he falls. He cannot get any satisfaction from his doctors about why he is having these tremors. I know he needs to be on a beta blocker, but its there anything he could take that will not cause these side affects

I am on Beta Blocker, never had problem, but many people do have. Beta Blockers are causing blood pressure drop. For us whom having high blood pressure also, that is good and no problem with weakness. But those have to take BB with normal or low BB can be a big problem: weak and tired they get and even falling as a result.
   What he can do as I know many people do, take less BB. Try different amount and see what the right doses is for him, which his body can take.
Well ofcourse he should talk to his doctor first about that, and his doctor can/must help .

My Best !
