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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

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
