best betta blocker for ectopic beats
Just wondering what is the best betta blocker for ectopic beats. My BP is normal and my heart rate is normal and I read that betta blockers lower bp and lower heart rate which i dont need that to happen cause i dont want to pass out. Is there any betta blockers that just stop the thuds without lowering everything? I have heard this medication is good for ectopic beats.

thanks

What is your resting heart rate and BP?

All beta blockers reduce heart rate and blood pressure to a certain degree, but they are not very effective in reducing blood pressure at low doses. So-called "non-selective" beta blockers reduce the blood pressure less than the "selective" ones, as the non-selective ones somewhat increase blood vessel tension.

Beta blockers are very helpful for some people (especially those with ectopic beats with anxiety, stress, etc) but in others, the ectopic beats are actually increased as the heart rate may get too slow. Ask your doctor, or preferrably a doctor specialized in internal medicine/heart medicine what he or she recommends.
