Beta blockers can be a PAIN.. Of all the available meds for HBP, they seem to have the worst side effects in general.
Personally, I think that giving them for control of blood pressure in the absence
of angina or serious irregular heart rhythm problems is truly bad medicine.
But I have a question...Given that you are only 20 and essential (primary) hypertension is almost unheard of in someone your age, have your doctors completely ruled out the possibility of secondary
causes in your case?
