Is nadolol (corgard) as effective as propranolol (inderal, innopran xl) in treating social anxiety?

NO: In theory, the answer is no because it doesn't cross the blood brain barrier as readily as propranolol. Nonetheless, it does block the catecholamine (adrenalin) response to stress/anxiety so it will still help and we all respond in our own unique way to every medicine so it may be excellent for some people. ...Read more

I take clonidine troprol XL lisinipril & celebrex (celecoxib) is this safe?

I take clonidine  troprol XL  lisinipril & celebrex (celecoxib)  is this safe?

With the exception: Of the innate side effects in each medication, and as long as your blood pressure is not too low, then it is a pretty safe mix as they do not work on the same receptors and shouldn't overlap. That being said, the one possible problem is taking an NSAID (celebrex) and lisinopril, you can cause kidney damage as one shuts down efferent and one afferent arteries to glomeruli. Be cautious. ...Read more

Was on metropolol -switched to coreg (carvedilol)-still having stuffed sinuses on coreg (carvedilol) also..Why do beta blockers cause this..Also what is sick sinus?

Look for other cause: B-blockers have effect on bronchospasm but mostly not on allergy components. So look for other causes. Sick sinus syndrome (sss) is due to lack of signal from the sinus node to cause the heartbeats, therefore, other sources of signal take over which are usually slower than the rate which would have been from the sinus node. ...Read more
