    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? – Carey Gregory Mar 6 at 20:22

    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. – Lilibete Mar 8 at 14:59
  • @Lilibete Thanks for that info! – red0ct Mar 9 at 22:14
  • @CareyGregory Yes, it is about “how true are the test results with regular beta blockers taking”. Sorry for my English – red0ct Mar 9 at 22:16
