Hello,

Eslo and Losakind should not make your asthma worse. Beta-blockers may do that but the drugs you're using are a calcium channel blocker (eslo) and an angiotensin receptor blocker (losakind). None of them needs to be discontinued because of your asthma.

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

Regards,
Dr. Panagiotis Zografakis, Internal Medicine Specialist
