Some beta blockers must be taken with food, while others should not be taken with food.

Carvedilol, labetalol, and metoprolol should always be taken with food. Taking it with food slows down how fast your body absorbs the medicine. This prevents your blood pressure from going too low. If you are on one of these medicines, make it a part of your daily routine. Get in the habit of taking it with the same meal every day.

Beta blockers like atenolol should be taken on an empty stomach. Nebivolol, penbutolol, and propranolol are some beta blockers that can be taken with or without food.

Depending on the medicine, you may or may not have it with your beef, chicken, or venison!
