My father has been recently diagnosed with angina pectoris, which is a bit of a shock for all of us. He is 45 years old and was always very healthy; I assume that was because he was an active soccer player until he turned 34. Anyway, he said that he has some complications with his beta blockers therapy. Can it be – beta blockers causing palpitations?

Beta blockers are type of medications that are used for blocking adrenergic substances, adrenalin in first place. Among many illnesses, including angina pectoris, it is used for treating cardial arrhythmias and heart attacks. There is a possibility that he was given big dosage suddenly, which can cause palpitations (which are rises of blood pressure), and they can seriously worsen his condition.
