Is tilt table test indicative with beta blockers for dysautonomia diagnosis? Or is it require drug withdrawal?

    I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you asking if a tilt table test can be conducted while the patient is taking beta blockers?

    I was instructed to taper off of beta blockers for a minimum of three weeks prior to autonomic testing. It dampens the heart rate accelerations, so it could produce a false negative as I understand it. That's what I was told and had to do for the testing.

  • @CareyGregory Yes, it is about “how true are the test results with regular beta blockers taking”. Sorry for my English
