Brief Answer:
Symptom wise approach

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your health concern and following is the recommended guideline:

1. Both hypertension and asthma are "psycho somatic" disorder thus tranquility of mind is important.
. Tablet Mentat or Brahmi vati: 2 tablet at bed time.

2. Since beta blockers causes bronchospasm thus should not be given in asthamatics, as a result PROLOMET-XL (Metoprolol) is Contraindicated in asthma, thus contact your attending physician.

3. The resulting drug could be an underlying cause of loss of stamina thus consult wih your doctor who might seek an alternate of the drug and then check your above said symptoms:

i. If they decrease/subside change the drug and /or
ii. If they persist then we can discuss further.
