BETA BLOCKERS Back

Medications
Description

Beta-blockers are medicines that work by temporarily stopping or reducing the body's natural 'fight-or-flight' responses.

In turn, they reduce stress on certain parts of the body, such as the heart and the blood vessels in the brain. They lower blood pressure, protect against heart attacks, and can improve the outlook for people with heart failure.

They are prescribed for several different conditions including high blood pressure, angina, some abnormal heart rhythms, heart, anxiety, migraine, glaucoma, and overactive thyroid symptoms.
