Comment from: 55-64on Treatment for 2-5 years Published: October 07

I have neurogenic hypertension which is high blood pressure due to an overactive nervous system. My resting heart rate is over 110 without any meds. I have tried many beta blockers and Betaxolol is by far the best of the best. Resting heart rate is now lo 60's!!! Feel great. Not many doctors prescribe this beta blocker because they don't know about it. It was not marketed very well. Almost all doctors prescribe Atenolol which did not work nearly as well for me. Betaxolol has a much longer half life, so its effects remain rock solid stable throughout the entire day. Another thing I like is that the circulation in my extremities is back to normal (warm feet and hands). On other beta blockers I was almost to the point of thinking I had Reynauds syndrome. My feet were ice cold and turning white. I also take a small dose (1mg) of Doxazosin to further increase my circulation. I wish many more people could find out about Betaxolol. Its the best beta blocker I have found.
