Lopressor®

Lopressor® is a beta blocker which is sometimes effective in the prevention of migraine. It is a cardio-selective beta blocker which can be used for some patients who have co-existing asthma. This compound is like other beta blockers devoid of instrinsic sympathomimetic activity that have proven effectiveness in prevention of migraine headaches. Side effects include decreased blood pressure and slow heart rate. Do not stop this class of medication abruptly as it can cause problems with heart rhythm in sensitive individuals.
