Sorry, another beta blockers question?

Do beta blockers have to build up in your system, in order to work fully and properly?

I took them for 3 weeks (on between 80mg - 120mg a day) and felt they had done their job and worked well, so stopped taking them (tailed them off over about 4 days). But after about a week my symptoms came back?

Anyone know why?

I take mine as and when.

Your symptoms came back because you're not ready to come off them I think, although it'll probably take a while to get used to the natural order of your body again.

Maybe go back on one a day and take it from there?
