i would like to find out the side effects of inderal, i take 10mg once in the morning. i started having panick attacks, but did not know this, my GP did some tests and showed irregular heart beat, hence the inderal. in the interim i have been diagnosed by a psychiatrist as having panic attacks. i was also diagnosed with bi-polar (not manic) and suffer from depression. i have been prescribed 100mg of neurontin 3 times a day, lamictan 100mg at night, remeron 30mg at night, what are the interactions of all these medications? i have also put on a lot of weight but does not know which of these medications are the cause of the weight gain?
Click on the link to read about Inderal possible side effects:
Interactions between your selected drugs
propranolol ↔ mirtazapine
Applies to: Inderal (propranolol), Remeron (mirtazapine)
MONITOR: Many psychotherapeutic and CNS-active agents (e.g., anxiolytics, sedatives, hypnotics, antidepressants, antipsychotics, opioids, alcohol, muscle relaxants) exhibit hypotensive effects, especially during initiation of therapy and dose escalation. Coadministration with antihypertensive agents, in particular vasodilators and alpha-blockers, may result in additive effects on blood pressure and orthostasis.
MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised during coadministration of these agents. Close monitoring for development of hypotension is recommended. Patients should be advised to avoid rising abruptly from a sitting or recumbent position and to notify their physician if they experience dizziness, lightheadedness, syncope, orthostasis, or tachycardia.
gabapentin ↔ mirtazapine
Applies to: Neurontin (gabapentin), Remeron (mirtazapine)
MONITOR: Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients.
MANAGEMENT: During concomitant use of these drugs, patients should be monitored for potentially excessive or prolonged CNS and respiratory depression. Ambulatory patients should be counseled to avoid hazardous activities requiring mental alertness and motor coordination until they know how these agents affect them, and to notify their physician if they experience excessive or prolonged CNS effects that interfere with their normal activities.
