Anyone tried beta blockers with stimulants?

Posted by DaveL on June 7, 2000, at 0:20:46

I've got a friend who's doctor put her on ritalin and a beta blocker. Like me she is dyslexic/ADHD. She says she loves the combo. I'm thinking about giving it a try because the ritalin often gives me jitters and anxiety. The beta blockers might also help my migranes. Has anyone had any experience with a beta blocker plus a stimulant? Sounds like a strange combo but the theory is that it allows you to experience the stimulant effect of the ritalin without your blood vessels being so constricted that you cut off the blood supply and miss the stimulant effect. According to my friend, Dyslexic's tend to have vascular plasticity problems and her doctor who specializes in dyslexia has had a lot of success using this combo. I guess it's not that much different than Wellbutrin and Klonopin. SRSI's with Trazadone, ect. One gives you enough energy to get through the day and the other calms you enough so that you can be human and get to sleep at night?? Anyone tried this combo???

Thanks in advance,
