Does Taking A Beta Blocker Counter The Effects Of Adderall
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

Toprol (metoprolol) XL as a beta blocker gives me too much dizziness as a prescription side effect. Can i expect that another bb will probably have the same side effect?
Yes: Toprol (metoprol (metoprolol)ol) is a "cardioselective" beta blocker, meaning is binds and effects the heart more than the blood vessels. This is suppose to decrease the side effects. If you are having dizziness from toprol (metoprolol) then i would try using something in a different class. With that said, that rule is not absolute, and depending on your situation a beta blocker + dizziness may be the best choice. Listen to your doc. ...Read more

Can strike a balance: When a person has two or more medical conditions needing treatment, his doctors will try to strike a balance with the medications, to improve each condition as much as possible without worsening the other condition(s). In regards to migrainers, medications such as triptans and ergot alkaloids can lead to raynaud's symptoms, so maybe using beta blockers is less problematic in a particular patient. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does taking a beta agonist for asthma and a beta blocker for high blood pressure counter act each other in any way?
Possibly: Avoid beta blockers during active asthma/bronchospasm as the airway issues could worsen. That said, when asthma is in the past and not an active concern, then some beta blockade might work and be tolerated. Would try to use beta 1 selective agents in such a case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
