Between inderal and prazosin? I have taken inderal for years for high blood pressure but I'm pretty sure I have PTSD so I was prescribed prazosin for nightmares. I have not taken my first dose which will be one mg at bed time but I'mhoping there are differences in the two because I don't want to feel like I have been on inderal how is prazosin going to differ?

inderal

What are your side effects with inderal? I take lisinopril,metroprolal tartrate,cardizim and something else for bp. Im not sure how they work, I know one is like a smooth muscle relaxer.

It's not really side effects

It's not really side effects but more the inderal burned out and did nothing for nightmares. The prazosin is so great for nightmares.

Inderal

Inderal is a beta blocker and the contra indications and interactions should be very carefully read as these can interact with many types of drug including benzodiazepines and other CNS depressants.
Usual dosage of the twice daily SR Inderal is 40 or 80mg every 12 hours.
