Our expert says:
Jenny, â-blockers are drugs that block the â receptors in the body. In general, when we refer to â-blockers we actually mean drugs that block â1 receptors. They decrease the heart rate, and also the blood pressure in hypertensive people. If you’ve been on the drugs for quite some time you can exercise as much as you like as the body has adapted to the effect of the â-blockers and the will be no bad side effects. Good luck.
