      A Meta-Analysis and Trials. In recent years, a question has been raised as to the advisability of using blocker drug therapy in the treatment of hypertension in the elderly. Loss of taste and smell can have a significant impact on quality of life, often leading to decreased appetite and poor nutrition. Sometimes loss of taste and smell contributes to depression. Loss of taste and smell also might tempt you to use excess salt or sugar on your food to enhance the taste — which could be a problem if you have high.

    Added acceptable contraindications to Evidenced Based Beta Blockers: • It is extremely unlikely that all three evidenced beta blockers would not be tolerated in a patient, but a non-evidenced based beta blocker would be tolerated. This scenario is so rare that there is not a need to separate contraindications by beta blocker class. Aminoglycoside dosing in the elderly with impaired renal function. Practical rule of thumb for dose adjustment. Anticholinergic agents. Clinical conditions that necessitate dosage adjustment in the elderly. Anorexia and aging. Screening for potential toxicity of prescription drugs: H2 blockers, beta blockers.

The benefit from a blood pressure lowering therapy with beta blockers may not outweigh its risks, especially in older populations.

There is increasing controversy regarding the long-term cognitive effects of beta-blockers on elderly people. Rogers and Bowman, 4 in a three-case report of older patients, demonstrated that subjects using beta-blockers (propranolol or atenolol) had insidious cognitive impairment.

In each case, marked improvement occurred on drug by: 2. Elderly patients are more susceptible to the respiratory side effects of beta blockers than people in other age groups. In a study published in the J issue of "The Lancet" (volume ), researchers revealed that some elderly patients receiving beta blockers for glaucoma treatment developed obstructive pulmonary conditions during the.

The first concern is the use of metoprolol (Lopressor), which is in a class of drugs called beta-blockers and typically isn't the best choice for treating cardiovascular problems in older adults. That's because nearly half of all people 60 and older don't produce the liver enzyme (CYP 2D6) that's needed to properly metabolize the drug.

Despite the fact that beta-blockers have been used for the treatment of hypertension for more than 30 years, no study has shown that their use reduces morbidity and mortality in the by: There is uncertainty or disagreement about whether beta-blockers are equally beneficial and well tolerated in elderly heart failure patients as in younger ones.
