> In theory, would a beta-adrenergic blocker block the peripheral stimulation of CNS stimulants such as Ritalin, while leaving its effects on the brain unhindered?

James here...

I take Inderal for this reason, as I take Dexadrine. But only as needed (once or twice a month) The beta blockers can cause depression
and create asthma in people where it does not exist prior.

Perhaps a different dose or different stim would
have less of this effect so a beta blocker would not be needed.
