> Choosing a betablocker depends what you want to treat (...vs...)

Stressful situations (ie giving a speech, interviews...) and med-induced tachycardia. Possibly med-induced angina (stimulants--which I no longer take-- cause me tachycardia and angina. I'm considering a trial of Provigil. I don't know if it would induce these same effects, but I'm willing to bet it would likely at least cause tachy).

And if I'm taking a beta blocker I'd just as well prefer to also receive any general cardioprotective effects possible at the same time.

> You cannot generaly say one is the better than the other. Concerning sideeffects I would rate atenolol definately better.

Are you referring to CNS effects? Others?

>>There are some betablockers which do not cause upregulation.

May I ask which ones? Would it not be easier to withdraw from these then?

>>If you want to stop an adrenaline rush there are better options (measured mostly by isoprenaline).

May I ask which ones and what you mean "measured mostly by isoprenaline"?

Sorry to pile on more questions. I really appreciate your input. Thanks.
