Lopressor®

Type: 
Medication

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.

Testimonial

Just a note of thanks to the NHF for hosting these helpful online seminars.  The recent "Fibromyalgia and Migraine" was the second Webinar I've attended, and I learned a great deal.

The Webinars are easy to log into, the presentations are professional, and the presenters do not "talk down" to their auditors. The NHF is apparently choosing subject matter experts with care, and the information is up-to-date. 

Again, thank you for the hard work. I look forward to future Webinars.
