What is/are Nadolol?
Nadolol (Corgard, Anabet, Solgol, Corzide, Alti-Nadolol, Apo-Nadol, Novo-Nadolol) is a non-selective beta blocker used in the treatment of high blood pressure, migraine headaches, and chest pain. This drug is also used as an anti-tremor drug in the treatment of both essential tremor and tremors associated with Parkinson's disease.
Nadolol is used for the prevention of migraine headaches for which there is good documentation. A case report study from Harvard Medical School, published in 1991, described three adult patients with ADHD unsuccessfully treated with traditional psychostimulant (amphetamine) therapy due to lack of effectiveness or intolerance of the psychostimulant. Nadolol was then added to the psychostimulant therapy and the combination of medications resulted in improved attention and focus with decreased medication side effects. This suggested the combination of nadolol and the psychostimulant might be effective for treatment-resistant adults with ADHD.
