[Warning] Heart Meds Up Fall Risk

Dear Turapür Today Reader,

Let’s face it — falls happen.

And while sometimes they cause little damage, many times taking a fall can result in a serious injury and loss of independence.

So your best bet is to avoid anything that can cause one, like wet floors and slick shoes.

But it turns out there’s one more thing that could set you up to take a tumble — your blood pressure medicine.

You see, Dutch researchers have just found that nonselective beta blockers can send your risk of falling into the stratosphere.

For the study, the scientists from the Erasmus University Medical Centre Rotterdam analyzed two studies that included more than 10,000 folks over the age of 55.

Some participants were taking selective beta blockers, and others were taking nonselective beta blockers.

After examining the data, the researchers found that nearly 3,000 of the folks on nonselective beta blockers experienced a fall.

And the bad news gets worse…

When taking a closer look, they discovered that fall risk shot up a whopping 22% in the nonselective beta blocker group. However, they saw no increase in the selective beta blocker group.

Experts aren’t exactly sure why nonselective beta blockers up fall risk but agree that your doc should consider this newfound side effect when prescribing them, especially if you’re 55 or older.

Nonselective beta blockers include propranolol, nadolol and labetalol. If you’re currently taking one of these drugs or are unsure if you are, you should let your doctor know that you’re concerned about falls.
