Take Notice of COPD or Asthma Patients Getting a Beta-Blocker

We're still getting questions about whether beta-blockers (metoprolol, propranolol, etc) are safe for patients with COPD or asthma.

Beta-blockers are sometimes avoided in these patients...because of concerns about these meds constricting the airways.

But evidence continues to grow that beta-blockers may actually DECREASE exacerbations and improve survival in COPD patients...probably by treating coexisting heart disease.
