Nadolol: Stopping Nadolol or any other beta blocker can result in a fast heart rate. Because of that patients are weaned off these meds rather than stopping them abruptly, or transitioned to another medicine of similar type.

What are the symptoms of ceasing to use the beta blocker nadolol?

Palpitations: Usually when one stops beta blockers suddenly there is often a rise in palpitations and jitteriness. This is because the body is used to the beta blockers suppressing heart rate and when they are stopped suddenly the body goes through a temporary period of symptoms like these through withdrawals. Ask your doctor if symptoms persist over 1-2 wks.
