Answered questions

Would Corgard or Tenormin be effective for treating akathisia?
also, the klonopin seems to be affecting my memory, (based on my experiences and the side effect profiles iv seen) Asked by Hilma Todora 3 months ago.

Not being an expert in akathisia but knowing a little bit about it, I did a little research for you. Beta blockers like Inderal (and Corgard and Tenormin) are often used because they can have a calming effect, especially by modulating the cardiovascular system. But they're not even first line treatment... First off - what are you on that is causing the akathisia? Can the dose be reduced? Can a substitute medication be used? First line treatment is usually an anticholinergic. There are a variety of these, some better than others. If the anticholinergic doesn't work, then some creative pharmacology is in order - so maybe some alpha or beta blocker(s), maybe a benzodiazepine like Klonopin. I'd imagine if Klonopin is effective, primidone might be slightly better. Regardless, there are a number of options open to you. Talk with your doctor about your options - if one class of medications doesn't work well another might. Best of luck to you! Answered by Adrian Baerman 3 months ago.

Klonopin and Corgard together?
a year ago I was put on beta blockers because xyprexa made me gain 90 pounds in 8 months and my blood pressure was 145/95.

Asked by Melodee Coaker 3 months ago.

a year ago I was put on beta blockers because xyprexa made me gain 90 pounds in 8 months and my blood pressure was 145/95. In December 2009 I quit taking Xyprexa, continued with the beta blocker and switched doctors because the one that made me fat with Xyprexa refused to give my Xanax for my core problem of Panic attacks, and only gave me more problems. When I quit aking the Xyprexa I weighed 285 pounds. Since January 2010 I switched to a new doctor that put me on Xanax and Corgard from Bystolic due to the cost of bystolic. A few months later I was switched from Xanax to Klonopin because I needed too much Xanax to keep me below the panic threshold. I now have lost the weight I gained from the Xyprexa and am still on the Beta blocker. I'm 5'10" and 205 pounds but still mildly obese and lately my BP has been in the 110-120/65-80 range and my resting HR is 53 lying down, 63 sitting up 73 in a chair and 83 standing. When i walk over a mile my HR can get as high as 130 with just a brisk walk. I know as a side effect klonopin lowers your BP and with the beta blocker I'm wondering if the Klonopin and beta blocker are giving me Low BP and abnormal HR because of the low BP. Any Ideas? I'm sheduled to see Lansing's Top cardiologist tomorrow. Hopefully I don't need the beta blocker anymore since my panic went from 3 or 4 times a week to daily 3 or 4 times a day since starting it in December last year. Answered by Kimberley Ladick 3 months ago.

since they both depress the central nervous system, it can be dangerous to take both at the same time. i'd get rid of the Corgard, and i'd switch to Xanax - Klonopin has way more side effects. Answered by Claretha Vannette 3 months ago.

Klonopin is a drug used to treat psychological issues also. I am presuming this is related to your statement about PTSD. Klonopin does lower the blood pressure, but it has side effects. Also it may not be the best choice for PTSD. There are other meds which do not mess with your blood pressure as much and have fewer side effects. here is what you need to do. Go to your health care provider as soon as possible. There are a number of tests you should have run. PTSD along with other forms of depression cause changes in the blood chemistry. Your doctor should test for these changes to determine how much of this change may be present. you also need to get a hemoglobin A1C. Your weight gain may have caused or be related to a borderline blood sugar problem that was aggravated by the klonopin. since you have lost most of the weight gain you may not need the Bystolic (it is a good medication, but), you could be over medicating if it is not needed. Once you have gotten a serious and complete history and physical and gotten a thorough look at your physical health, you should ask your doctor about Professional counseling. Medications only cover up PTSD, but you probably need some Professional help to search out the cause and learn to manage it effectively. The problems you are talking about are long term in nature. Those problems must be managed and they don't magically go away with a little bit of medication. Answered by Chiquita Bastarache 3 months ago.


A substitute for Corgard?
Corgard (nadolol) has been discontinued in my country, I tried atenolol and bisoprolol but they both failed in bringing my heart rate down as I needed. Is there any other betablocker more similar to nadolol in that it lowers heart rate more effectively? Or any combination of drugs that will achieve this? Asked by Fumiko Wangerin 3 months ago.

It's possible that atenolol and bisoprolol failed in you because they are beta-1 selective whereas nadolol is not, it binds to both beta-1 and beta-2 receptors. All that means is that atenolol and bisoprolol won't effect your lungs as much as nadolol will. This would be good for you if you had asthma or COPD. You could try another beta blocker that is non-selective (as nadolol is). Some examples (on the US market) are propranolol, timolol, and carvedilol. Hope this helps!

Asked by Sherry Nirenberg 3 months ago.

I've been on BP meds since December 2009 because my doctor had be on Xyprexa for 8 months and I gained 100 pounds from it. When I was started on BP meds I was on a cardio selective beta blocker called Bystolic, about Six months ago I was switched to Corgard which is a non cardio selective beta blocker. The reason I was on Xyprexa is because my Female man hating doctor refused to give me any form of Benzodiaipne for PTSD, then after my 100 pound weight gain she realized "oops we better take you off that." I switched doctor that same week, and was put on Xanax with the bystolic. I was needeing too much xanax to quel my daily daylong panic, so I was switched to Klonopin. I've lost 85 of the 100 pounds I gained since switching docs in January, and lately I've noticed that my blood pressure after taking Klonopin gets low and my heart rate gets high apon very little exertion. For instance sep 24 while in the ER after waking up with a resting HR of 100, and after taking my beta blocker then a klonopin 6 hours later this was my BP/HR 12:00 HR 62 Pulse 62 BP 111/73 12:30 HR 61 Pulse 60 BP119/76 12:45 HR 60 pulse 59 BP 113/74 1:00 HR 64 pulse 64 BP 111/71 1:30 HR 61 pulse 56 BP 120/64 1:45 HR 60 pulse 59 BP 114/70. this was all while sitting up in a hospital bed after the 20mg corgard an 2 doses of .5mg Klonopin. But as soon as I stood up and left the hospital my heart rate went back to 85-100 bpm. any ideas Maybe half my Beta blocker dose? I was referred to a Cardiologist by my doctor Sept. 23rd, but have yet to recieve an appointment. Answered by Kasey Pires 3 months ago.

the key words you wrote is RESTING HEART RATE THEN STOOD UP LEFT WHICH MEANS EXERCISE AND HEART RATE WENT UP and maybe because you lost weight you may not need the blood pressure medicine discuss this with the cardiologist when you see them Answered by Freeda Sugahara 3 months ago.

Is Nadolol (Corgard) as effective as Propranolol (Inderal, InnoPran XL) in the treatment of social anxiety?
For the past several years I have been taking 80mg Nadolol (Corgard) twice daily for migraine prophylaxis. I understand that Propranolol is sometimes prescribed specifically for the treatment of social anxiety and wonder whether I should be considering it instead of Nadolol. Asked by Brian Yeakley 3 months ago.

I take Nadolol to help my blood pressure. I have taken Inderal in the past. I have found that Nadolol helps my heart better than the Inderal. I don't feel my heart beating as much as I did when I took the Inderal. For me, the Nadolol seems more helpful. I hope you will be doing better. Good Luck. Answered by Lavern Nye 3 months ago.


Is there any medicine that they have that is comparable to Corgard/Naladol medicine?
My BF had been taking it for yrs and it wasnt able to be gotten the last time he went to the Pharmacy NOW the Dr has him on Diovan 160mg If anyone knows please HELP US...Thanks Asked by Lilia Hernande 3 months ago.

There are many drugs that are like Nadolol. Nadolol is a beta blocker. Other beta blockers used for high blood pressure include metoprolol, bisoprolol and atenolol. Diovan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker and is very different from nadolol. If he was doing well with nadolol then he should probably try another beta blocker before switching to a different class. Metoprolol is the most common one used.

beta blockers just deaden the nerve endings, you might as well take 750mg vicadin Answered by Luise Deleonardo 3 months ago.

Beta blockers are mainly for blood pressure but they are also often used for the treatment of some kinds of headache - migraine type headaches in particular. It soulds like your doc is doing a good job for you but if you are worried about the medicine or have questions about it then the best thing to do is to go back and discuss it with him or her in person. Hope this helps Answered by Enola Perna 3 months ago.


Do beta blockers like Nadolol (corgard) really lessen the effect of the albuerol treatment for asthma?
Asked by Teddy Nolting 3 months ago.

Yes, beta blockers not only block the effect of beta-agonists, such as PROVENTIL HFA (albuterol inhalation) Inhalation Aerosol, but may produce severe bronchospasm in asthmatic patients. Answered by Vanetta Bourgoyne 3 months ago.


Have you ever used a beta blocker Nodolol with nitric oxide?
whay is your experience? Asked by Maurice Terpstra 3 months ago.

Naldolol (Corgard) is an older beta blocker which does not mean that it is not a good medication. Nitric oxide was originally referred to as endothelial derived relaxing factor. It was later discovered that EDRF was nitric oxide and that the drug isosorbide mononitrate was a structural and functional match. Naldolol and nitric oxide are potentially complimentary drugs and there are many reasons to combine them. Fairly recently a novel beta blocker nebivolol (Bystolic) was released which seems to have the benefits of both naldolol and nitric oxide. Nebivolol is very expensive however while the other two medications are very inexpensive. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and may God bless.
