If the condition you are taking the beta blocker is under control, (for example irregular heart rate or high Blood pressure) then yes it would be prudent to stop the beta blocker for < 1 day. Although -caine allergy is rare, and usually due to the preservative, there could be an outside chance that a systemic reaction could occur, with a patient's breathing being compromised.
