Heart Failure and Beta-Blockers

Should I Avoid Certains Drugs While Taking Beta-Blockers?

A beta-blocker is often prescribed with a diuretic, ACE inhibitor, or angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). If you have side effects after taking your medications together, contact your doctor or nurse. You may need to change the times you are taking each drug.

It is important that your doctor is aware of all the medications you are taking, as some may have the potential to interact with beta-blockers. Talk to your doctor before taking any new drug, including over-the-counter drugs, herbs, and supplements.
