I am not a doctor/psyachiatrist nor pretend to be one at all..OK
Beta Blockers non-addictive anxiety medication, beta blockers treat the physical symptoms of anxiety.
These medications are prescribed to patients with social phobias who are greatly affected by the physical symptoms of anxiety. Beta blockers do not treat the emotional symptoms of anxiety, and are prescribed off-label. Generic versions of beta blockers that are given for anxiety are propranolol and atenolol.
Note: Like all medications there are side effects or adveresed reactions.
Talk to your psyachiatrist about possible side effects of the following medications.
Inderal is a beta blocker used in the management of symptoms in anxiety, panic attacks, phobias and aggressive behavior. It can also be used in the treatment of various medical problems such as high blood pressure, migraines, irregular heartbeats and to prevent a second heart attack.
Because Tenormin is a beta blocker used in the management of symptoms in anxiety, panic attacks, phobias and aggressive behavior. It can also be used in the treatment of various medical problems such as high blood pressure, migraines, irregular heartbeats and to prevent a second heart attack, This specific drug can also be prescribed to help treat abnormally rapid heart rhythms and stimulate the pace of the heart.
Now what you must do is discuss the above listed information with your Psyachiatist.
And only he/she will be able to determine what is best for you.
It is recommended to monitor the drugs that you take, after having it checked on the Interactions Checker:
Applies to: atenolol, Klonopin (clonazepam)
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.
Other drugs that your selected drugs interact with
* atenolol interacts with more than 300 other drugs.
* Klonopin (clonazepam) interacts with more than 300 other drugs.
Interactions between your selected drugs and food
Applies to: atenolol
GENERALLY AVOID: Orange juice may moderately reduce the bioavailability of atenolol by interfering with its absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. In a pharmacokinetic study, subjects ingested 200 mL orange juice 3 times daily for 3 days and twice daily on the fourth day, and took 50 mg atenolol with 200 mL orange juice on day 3. The average peak plasma concentration (Cmax) of atenolol fell by 49% and the area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) fell by 40% in comparison to subjects who drank only water. In addition, the presence of food may reduce the bioavailability of atenolol by 20%. The clinical significance is unknown.
MANAGEMENT: Patients treated orally with atenolol should be advised to take atenolol at the same time each day and to avoid consumption of large amounts of orange juice to prevent any undue fluctuations in serum drug levels. Monitoring for altered efficacy of atenolol may be advisable.
