Can beta-blockers cause dizziness?

Brian is on Tenormin ,coversyl and ikorel. He collapsed a few days ago (was unconscious) and taken by ambulance to the hospital.Extensive tests could not identify the cause. He is home now, but has had 'waves of dizziness this pm.Do you think this is related to the beta-blocker. His blood pressure was not low at the time.Blood sugar ok too. We do not know how to get to the bottom of this. Are there any particular tests you would recommend? Please help! Pat

Hi,

If he is on beta blocker - there will be a decrease in heart rate. Increase in intra-ocular pressure can also cause this issue - you need to see an ophthalmologist.

Other reasons for this issue can be due to vertigo. Seeing an ENT doctor and ophthalmologist can help you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
