To Scott - A Question About Hytrin and Ne

Posted by bulldog2 on May 16, 2008, at 17:47:50

Would hytrin be a good choice to counter the side effects of trouble peeing from a Norepenephrine based ad such as pamelor or ixel?

I had never heard of Hytrin. I Googled it and discovered that it is a NE alpha-1 antagonist. It might help with micturition. However, you might see a drop in blood pressure as well when you combine it with other peripheral NE alpha-1 antagonists like Pamelor (nortriptyline). I would not recommend that you avoid Hytrin, but you might want to start lower and slower as not to provoke a reaction.

Please let me know how things work out with the Hytrin (terazosin). I could use some help with micturition, too. Nardil + nortriptyline create a problem for me. I use bethachol during emergencies.

Scott...Any mental or physical effects from bethanachol other than the intended effects? I might consider bethanacol, so am curious to know more.

Hi BB.

Bethanechol, as I'm sure you are aware, reverses the anticholinergic/hypersympathetic state produced by some drugs by acting as a parasympathomimetic. It actually stimulates acetylcholine muscarinic receptors. I have only taken it a few times, so I can't comment on its chronic use. However, it does not cross the blood-brain barrier, so I doubt that it is depressogenic.
