In my opinion, beta blockers should only be used in emergency situations to keep a person alive. Long term use is very damaging to the body. Focusing on health is far better and doctors that took the Hippocratic oath should all agree. "I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure." It took time for you to get into the situation you are in and it should be obvious to you that you were not doing something correctly. Doctors treat symptoms, not root causes of disease anymore. Drugs are designed to create a reaction, not nourish the body and build health.
When comparing the iatrogenic acts (induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures) of modern medicine in America with the statistical numbers of people dying of any particular disease, it is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. And when we look at the cost of these iatrogenic deaths, the cost is in the billions. The iatrogenic death rate of 783,936 in one year demonstrates the inadequacies greatly. It is further disturbing to realize that as few as 5 percent and only up to 20 percent of iatrogenic acts are ever reported. This means that that iatrogenic death rate of 783,936 is most likely much higher. The proliferation of drug use to treat symptoms is promoting wide spread use of multiple medications that in many cases, obviously from the statistics, causing many to die and, as well, be damaged.
You can rely on drugs for the rest of your life or focus on health. Since doctors have no understanding of nutrition, it would be a good idea for you to work with a Certified Nutritional Therapist and get back on the road to real health, not some "life support pill" that is just keeping you propped up until you deteriorate more rapidly as a result of taking drugs.
good luck to you
