Doctor:Long term prophylaxis with Beta blockers
Doctor:If your attacks are frequent you can start on betablockers
User:but those longterm things are make us drowsy right?
User:i took them last year for a month or two i think
User:but i couldn't continue as i was feeling drowsy, and heavy in head etc
Doctor:they do cause side effects
Doctor:Your attacks are more in summer
Doctor:So, in summer you can take beta-blockers as precautionary measure
