Are these drugs used to reduce cardiac output: calcium channel blockers and beta (receptor) blockers?
Does taking a beta blocker counter the effects of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?
No: I would avoid the combination of beta-blockers and adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) produces widespread sympathetic nervous system activation via its action on Alpha and beta adrenergic receptor stimulation. Adding a beta-blocker could result in unapposed Alpha adrenergic receptor stimulation and result in a hypertensive crisis and cardiac problems including heart attack. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the long term effects of beta blockers and ace inhibitors ie : lisinopril 2.5 and metoprolol succinate 50mg both q daily.
Is Cardura (doxazosin) a reasonable second BP drug with Lisinopril when CCBs, diuretics, beta blockers are not well tolerated? Also on B-agonists for asthma.
Yes, it is an option: Cardura (doxazosin) or another alpha blocker type drug is an option when the other classes of drugs mentioned are not well tolerated. Alpha blockers can cause dizziness so they are best taken at night to minimize this effect. The dose needs to be increased slowly. Make sure you are exercising and minimizing salt, alcohol and caffeine as well. ...Read more
No: It's not a listed side effect and I've personally never seen it happen. ...Read more
Beta Blocket: Regarding potency and effectiveness of beta blocking agents, after propranolol, my choice would be atenolol. Atenolol is equally effective across all indications as propranolol. Two added advantages of atenolol are its long half life which allows for most patients to be treated with once daily dosing. Its .Water solubility, does not allow CNS entry, thus markedly reducing CNS adverse effects. ...Read more

Calcium channel bloc: Makes sure you are well hydrated....that is #1 cause of palpitations. Further eliminate caffiene containing drinks. Work on your anxiety by trying to actively stay calm, meditate, etc. AFter all those techniques, you could try Calcium channel blockers for palpitations, but they, too cause bradycardia.

Sometimes: These are two totally different classes of drugs and depending on the mechanism by which your pvcs arise, a calcium channel blocker may indeed be more effective. If drugs fail you, an expert center and electrophysiologist may be able to perform a PVC ablation to eliminate the beats from within the heart, but such procedures require a skilled electrophysiologist for the best chance at good results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anxiety: Each have their benefits but Lexapro (escitalopram) is used primarily for anxiety and depression. Beta blockers have multiple functions, anxiety being one. It looks like your physician in trying multiple medications to give you more help throughout the day and treat on multiple fronts (which is a good idea). ...Read more
No interaction..: Not sure if this is what you meant to ask..But there is no known interaction between the two medicines. Also, the half-life (time it takes for half to disappear) of Adenosine is less than 10 seconds and thus not likely to cause much problem even if it does. Adenosine is usually given via IV push hoping to correct a specific heart arrythmia n it is gone in seconds/minutes..Ask again if u need to.. ...Read more
Reverses Ht Failure: Toprol xl (specifically that formulation, not metoprolol tartrate) and Carvedilol (generic or Coreg (carvedilol) brand name) have been shown in large, well controlled clinical trials to slow and sometimes reverse the damage of heart failure. They operate by blocking a malfunctioning feedback loop of hormones and signaling molecules, ultimately by blocking the effect of adrenaline on the heart. Good question! ...Read more
Are beta blockers & calcium channel blockers truly contradicted in Wolff-Parkinson-White patients?
Is it okay to use beta blockers (propranolol) with amphetamines and methylphenidate to counteract uncomfortable stimulant effects?
It can be tricky: Beta blockers block only one arm of the adrenaline response that methylphenidate and/or amphetamines stir up - the Alpha adrenergic effects are not blocked, and may be relatively increased in people on beta blockers, especially hypertension. If you are getting uncomfortable stimulant effects, it would generally be better to either reduce the dose of the med or switch to constant-release form. ...Read more
