Can succinylcholine drugs (nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure? Any answers appreciated!

Can succinylcholine drugs (nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure? Any answers appreciated!

No.: Succinylcholine actually causes an increase in intraocular pressure for about 10 minutes after administration. Classic teaching was not to use succ in people with open globe injuries. There are situations, though, where using succ with other agents that lower IOP is preferred because it makes intubation more smooth, avoiding hypertension and airway reactivity that is worse for the situation anyway ...Read more

Is it possible that succinylcholine drugs(nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure?

No: Succinylcholine is known to increase intraocular minimally when given to secure the airway. The increase is small and passing, therefore it has been used in patients with increased intraocular pressure. ...Read more

How can the therapeutic effects of antacid drugs, h2 blockers, proton pump inhibitor drugs, misoprostol?

How can the therapeutic effects of antacid drugs, h2 blockers, proton pump inhibitor drugs, misoprostol?

Question?: I'm not sure I fully understand what your question is? The drugs you listed all help with symptoms of GERD or stomach ulcers, and they have different means by which they help patients with these problems. The safest and easiest to take are antacids and H2 blockers. Please consider rephrasing your question more specifically. ...Read more

Do selective adeno-adenergic blockers (prazosin, terazosin, doxazosin, trimazosin) protect  from acute cocaine-induced vasoconstrictive damage?

Do selective adeno-adenergic blockers (prazosin, terazosin, doxazosin, trimazosin) protect  from acute cocaine-induced vasoconstrictive damage?

Some: Cocaine causes it's effect by preventing the reuptake of monamine (epinephrine, etc) and causes these neurotransmitters to continue exciting the a1 receptor. The meds listed block alpha-1 receptors, so theoretically will blunt the effects of Cocaine on some vessels, but focus mostly (esp. Tamsulosin) on a specific sub-type (alpha-1a) that is mostly in the bladder, not in the vessels. ...Read more

Do any beta blockers act on Central Nervous System? Labetalol, Propranalol? What about Alpha-1 blockers?

Do any beta blockers act on Central Nervous System?  Labetalol, Propranalol? What about Alpha-1 blockers?

Yes, most of them: Beta blockers are either water soluble or lipid soluble. The latter cross the blood-brain barrier and act on the CNS (central nervous system). Atenelol and Naldolol are 2 water soluble ones that do not readily cross into the brain. Alpha blockers generally do act on the CNS, and the 2 most common side effects are hypotension and dizziness. ...Read more

Reconciliation: If different doctors all use electronic medical records, and they perform "medication reconciliation" at each visit so that they all know what doctor prescribed which medication, likelihood is high that the systems alerts of any potential problems with the medications. The Affordable Care Act (=Obamacare) mandates medication reconciliation. ...Read more

Could sodium channel blockers help w/ angina and vasoconstriction? I Read about Ranolazine, sounds promising for angina, any experience? Vasodilation?

Could sodium channel blockers help w/ angina and vasoconstriction? I Read about Ranolazine, sounds promising for angina, any experience? Vasodilation?

Sure: ranolazine can definitely help with chronic nonrevasularizable angina but there are many more med options before that. And at age 35 it's not something that would be used on you really. ...Read more

Are there alternative therapies for calcium channel blocker overdose?

Are there alternative therapies for calcium channel blocker overdose?

Alternative?: Please define "alternative". If you just wait, a calcium blocker will just wear off by itself. If you have severe low blood pressure or severe blocked heart rhythm, you will need immediate treatment with therapies of proven value. ...Read more

Beta blockers for anxiety/migraines, does this work?

Beta blockers for anxiety/migraines, does this work?

No/Yes: Beta blockers do not help symptoms of anxiety. Sometimes they will blunt the effect stress may have on your heart by blocking the same receptors that 'adrenaline-like' hormones work on. There has been many years of use to prevent migraines, particularly with propanolol which is an older generation of beta blockers. They have been known to reduce migraines. ...Read more

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

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
