Used for a variety of different conditions ranging from heart failure, blood pressure control and even stage fright, beta blockers are known to block the beta receptor in the human body. By doing this, they slow the heart down, and regulate the amount of salt the kidney gets rid of. Side effects include fatigue and wheezing. Examples of these medications include Metoprolol, Bisoprolol, and Carvedilol.
