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

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

Drug interactions : I'm a psychologist- I don't prescribe medications. But, In my practice I have not heard of any drug interactions between buspirone and atenolol. Buspirone binds to serotonin and dopamine receptors and reduces anxiety. Atenolol is a beta-blocker which slows down heart rate- and also can reduce panic attacks. If you are concerned about any symptoms contact the prescribing physician. ...Read more

Is there any dangerous interaction between Xanax (alprazolam) 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?

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
