Nadolol


Presentation

  • A frequent conference presenter and speaker who is widely cited in the national media, he is past president of the Section on Clinical Child Psychology (the former Division 12) of the American Psychological Association, and of the International Society[books.google.com]
  • We present here the first case report of successful treatment of lithium-induced tremor with nadolol, which was selected because the patient had compromised liver function. The patient's liver function tests remained stable with the therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Congestive Heart Failure
  • The rationale for this pilot study was based on the paradigm shift that was observed with the use of beta-blockers in congestive heart failure, which once contraindicated because of their acute detrimental effects, have now been shown to reduce mortality[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Tell your doctor if you have asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, heart block, low heart rate, low blood pressure, impaired kidney function, diabetes mellitus, overactive thyroid, or peripheral vascular disease.[clevelandclinic.org]
  • heart failure liver or kidney disease diabetes a thyroid disorder pheochromocytoma (tumor of the adrenal gland) pregnant breast feeding Side effects of Nadolol (Corgard): Stop using Nadolol (Corgard) and call your doctor at once if you have any of these[medicalpublications.org]
  • To make sure nadolol is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have: coronary artery disease (clogged arteries); congestive heart failure; a thyroid disorder; kidney disease; diabetes (taking nadolol can make it harder for you to tell when you have low[drugs.com]
Pneumonia
  • There were major complications in nine patients treated with ligation (seven had bleeding esophageal ulcers and two had aspiration pneumonia) and two treated with medication (both had bradycardia and dyspnea) (P 0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Increased CRP 86,161 Increased BNP 162,163 Many potentially “reversible” causes of AF have been reported, including binge drinking, cardiothoracic and noncardiac surgery, myocardial infarction (MI), pericarditis, myocarditis, hyperthyroidism, electrocution, pneumonia[doi.org]
Hypotension
  • Nadolol may reduce reflex orthostatic hypotension.[pdr.net]
  • Additive hypotension may occur with other antihypertensives, acute ingestion of alcohol, or nitrates.[nursing.unboundmedicine.com]
  • Drug: nsaid s may decrease hypotensive effects; may mask symptoms of a hypoglycemic reaction to insulin, sulfonylureas ; prazosin, terazosin may increase severe hypotensive response to first dose. Absorption: 30–40% of PO dose absorbed. Peak: 2–4 h.[robholland.com]
  • The mechanism responsible is complex, the acute effect being mainly modulated by arterial hypotension and the chronic effect by changes in portal resistance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Slow Pulse
  • Advise patient to notify health care professional if slow pulse, difficulty breathing, wheezing, cold hands and feet, dizziness, confusion, depression, rash, fever, sore throat, unusual bleeding, or bruising occurs.[nursing.unboundmedicine.com]
Diastolic Hypertension
  • Abstract Nadolol was effective and well tolerated as once-daily monotherapy for mild to moderate essential supine diastolic hypertension (SDBP) in 10 young (mean age, 39 years) and 12 elderly (mean age, 68 years) patients in a single-blind, placebo-baseline[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Psychiatric Symptoms
  • Our results raise the possibility that the mechanism of action of nadolol on psychiatric symptoms in schizophrenic patients may be different from the mechanism of improvement of neuroleptic-induced extrapyramidal symptoms and akathisia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Tremulousness
  • ., tremulousness, sweating, palpitation, headache, malaise) in patients without CAD. a Discontinue long-term therapy gradually (particularly in patients with myocardial ischemia); decrease dosage over 1–2 weeks and monitor carefully. 600 a If exacerbation[drugs.com]

Workup

  • As with any use of β-blocker therapy in a pediatric patient, a cardiac workup is advised before the start of nadolol therapy; blood pressure and heart rate monitoring should be performed at one and two hours after the first dose and continued during dose[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Before the start of treatment with any β-blocker, it is mandatory to carry out a cardiac workup and to monitor the patient’s BP and HR one and two hours after the initial dose and throughout the course of dose escalation.[ajhp.org]
Gastric Varices
  • Recurrent bleeding from gastric varices occurred in two patients (3%) in the carvedilol group and in eight patients (13%) in the N   I group (P   0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Wide QRS Complex
  • Electrophysiological study • To clarify the mechanism of wide-QRS-complex tachycardia• To identify a predisposing arrhythmia such as atrial flutter or paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia• To seek sites for curative AF ablation or AV conduction block[doi.org]
Third Degree Atrioventricular Block
  • ., sinus bradycardia, second- or third-degree atrioventricular block), a certain serious heart condition (cardiogenic shock), uncontrolled severe heart failure, asthma.[webmd.com]
  • Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: certain types of heart rhythm problems (such as a slow heartbeat, second- or third-degree atrioventricular block) blood circulation problems (such as Raynaud's[myhealth.alberta.ca]

Treatment

  • Combination treatment attenuated this response and significantly reduced plasma aldosterone. Neither treatment had any effect on plasma noradrenaline levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • A hemodynamic response to treatment is associated with a better long-term prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Stable cirrhotic patients of mixed etiology underwent an intravenous glucose tolerance test and hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp for the measurement of insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity (n 16) and a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (n 17).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • The recent demonstration that beta blockers selectively blunt the increased morning risk of myocardial infarction suggests that these agents block the pathophysiologic consequences of stressors concentrated in the morning.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
