Exercising whilst on Beta Blockers

Postby tamsynjones » Thu Apr 16, 2015 5:49 pm

Hello Team!

I was born with a coarctation of the aorta. After two surgeries it was fixed and all has been well since.

A few years ago I was put on a very low dose of bisoprolol after a heart monitor session showed I had periods of high blood pressure.

I have just joined a gym and was wondering if I needed to contact my cardiologist before I start going regularly. Last year I ran a 5k after following the Couch to 5k Programme , which was great and I felt fine.

I basically just wanted to know if you have been given any advice from your cardiologists when it comes to exercise whilst on beta blockers.

I'm a fairly active woman of healthy weight and lifestyle and feel that its OK as long as I don't push myself too far!
