What would be the best beta blocker for bodybuilders? I've tried coreq, it was ok. I liked it better than Metoprolol. I can't get a sweat on Metoprolol.

I'm not on beta blockers....yet. Just an lisinopril for me.

But I hear good things about bystolic. It increases NO production; so it helps the pecker

I like propranolol, short half life and you can control the effects/sides better, dose higher when needed and less when not. Never did well on any longer lasting or time release beta blockers. Too many sides and exercise intolerance.

Bystolic is supposed to be good for Bodybuilding. I have metoprolol and really do not care for it.

I started metoprolol in my 30's at 50mg for bp, my issue was more about my heart rate so it worked well. Over the yrs I've gotten up to 200mg of ext release which is the max dose. The immediate release doesn't work for me. That with 12.5 hydro and my bp stays at 130 / 70. I've tried lysinopril, which is not a beta blocker, and it had no effect. I've heard alot of bad things about it from people I know who have tried it. Most notable is the constant coughing.
