Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Neurological and psychiatric manifestations, such as depression, acute brain syndrome, tremor and psychosis are some of the side effects of β-blockers. We present a 70-year-old patient suffering from ischemic heart disease who was being treated with pindolol and who complained of dizziness, leg cramps and visual hallucinations. These symptoms were attributed to the pindolol, since following cessation of the drug, they all disappeared.
