Gloria,

Take it one step at a time. First let's see if you can DO any decent excercising.
On large scale beta blockade all I'm good for is watching TV and gaining weight.

About all I can bear and still work out is 40 mg propranolol (very fast acting) at least 4 hours before a workout, more like beta-blockade LITE!:*

With 40 mg. nadolol (very long acting) I might just as well be put on a ventilator!

I too have often worried about an aerobic workout when I can't "get it up" but I excercise more for muscle tone and size and THAT, at least, is independent of heartrate.
