Re: Questions about side effects of beta blockers...

It can take awhile for you body to adjust to the beta blockers. Some people do report strange dreams and restlessness, this can also be caused by anxiety. It can take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust and for side effects to subside. What ever you do, you should not stop taking the beta blockers without consulting your doctor first. Suddenly stopping them can be dangerous (you have to gradually ween off of them).

I personally have been taking metoprolol for a tachycardia and PVCs for over 6 years without any bothersome side effects, so beta blockers can work well for some people.
