Weening off Beta Blockers

Does anyone know how I can ween off of Beta Blockers without the side effects of a fast heartbeat? I used to take one 50mg pill a day and now I'm taking half of that but I always feel that fast heart beat.

Can anyone help?

Re: Weening off Beta Blockers

Gosh~I feel for you! The first bp med I took was a beta blocker and it made me crazy. When I weaned off,I had a wacky fast pulse(like you). The doctor gave me Ativan which worked wonders. When I weaned from Tenormin I could not be "still". It was awful~The Ativan helped me for sure. Now I'm taking Diovan(which is not working) to lower my bp. This time around the Ativan is helpling my "nerves" but not my bp. Maybe you could call your MD and ask for a med(like Ativan or Valium) that will calm you while you wean off. BEST OF LUCK!
