Özet

Aim: Calcium channel blockers (CCB) and beta blockers (BB) are primarily used to treat hypertension. Overdose of these medications can occur by accidental ingestion or ingestion for suicide attempt. Morbidity and mortality are higher in these poisonings compared to other poisonings. In this study, BB or CCB drug poisoning cases are discussed and the literature is reviewed.
