Mr Gopal, an asthmatic was recently prescribed propranolol for his complaints of anxiety. What would you query the prescriber with regards to the use of propranolol in Mr Gopal? I know its because Propranolol is a beta-blocker, but may I have a detailed explanation for this?

Beta blockers are not recommended for people with asthma as they can exacerbate the bronchiospasms.

I think that one was a trick question, because as the previous poster said, beta blockers are contraindicated in patients with ashthma.
