Beta blockers are commonly used to treat high blood pressure and heart conditions. Some types are also used to prevent migraines and treat tremor.

Beta blockers are not often the first medicine given for high blood pressure. They may be a good choice for those who also have other heart conditions. These may include a heart attack or heart failure.

There are many different types of beta blockers. Here are a couple of examples:

  • Metoprolol
  • Carvedilol
  • Atenolol
  • Nebivolol
  • Labetalol
  • Propranolol
  • Penbutolol
