Most beta-blockers are taken once a day, apart from certain beta-blockers that are used during pregnancy andSotalol, which is given two or three times a day.

Ifyou forget to take a dose of your beta-blocker, you should check the patient information leaflet that comes with your medicine. It should include advice about what to do in this situation.
