11.6.2 Beta-blockers

Beta-blockers, even those with apparent cardioselectivity, should not be used in patients with asthma or obstructive airways disease, unless no alternative treatment is available. In such cases the risk of inducing bronchospasm should be appreciated and appropriate precautions taken.

Beta-blocker eye drops should be avoided in patients receiving oral verapamil.
