Is there a dangerous interaction between 7.5mg Buspirone once daily and 25mg atenolol daily?

Is there any dangerous interaction between Xanax and Atenolol??

Is there any dangerous interaction between Xanax and Atenolol??

Define doses used: Dangerous? You mean as in "can kill a person?" Or do you mean to the point where you could pass out, hit your head and have to go to the hospital for a few stitches? There's a potential blood pressure could be lowered more than expected seeing as how atenolol lowers pressure & Xanax is a sedative type of drug. However, strictly speaking there are no significant interactions betwixt them. ...Read more

I'm on atenolol 25mg daily. Helps control my anxiety fast HR. What actual anxiety med can I take while on atenolol with no interaction?

SSRI : An SSRI (example: Paxil) would be a much more appropriate med if you have long term anxiety, will work more effectively than atenolol. It won't really interact and eventually the goal would be to ditch the atenolol and just use an appropriate anti-anxiety med. ...Read more

What are the interactions between indapamide with my atenolol?

Interactions: I don't know of any interactions between these medications other than that they are both high blood pressure medications and could lower your blood pressure excessively if this is too high of a dose for you. Indapamide works by making you urinate a little more (a water pill) and atenolol works by slowing the heart rate a little. ...Read more

I take 1mg clonazepam daily and 50mg of atenolol. Want to start CoQ10. Would there be any interactions?Will it be beneficial?

There is no actual: scientific studies that concluded CoEnzyme Q10 had long lasting or significant beneficiary effects. I do not think there are many reported cases of this supplement causing absorption or metabolizing interactions with the medicines you are taking. So I cannot say for sure if your supplement will be beneficial at all. ...Read more

Can taking clonazepam .5mg along with atenolol 12.5mg together cause any unwanted interactions?These were prescribed by doctor.

Strictly speaking NO: There are no drug to drug interactions between these 2 medications, however, there is a possibility that blood pressure could be lowered a bit more than expected with just the atenolol by itself and the patient could also become a little more fatigued than by taking either alone. ...Read more
