 3  High blood pressure/high heart rate Extreme tiredness Weigh gain It did lower my blood pressure to about 120/80 and my pulse from 105 down to 85. The bad side of the medicine is I have no energy, if I make through the day without a nap itís a miracle. Iíve also put on about 20 pounds and canít lose it, Iíve tried exercising but it wipes me out, I have to constantly diet just to maintain my weight. Have a doctors appointment this week to get off the medication. F 39 1 years
 4  Mitral valve prolapse A little tired Uses corgard 10 mg a day for mvp works great for that I don't wanna take to much so it won't make me to tired M 46 1 years
 1  HTN This drug made me extremely drowsy so if you have or care for small children I definitely wouldn't recommend it. The worse side effect of all is hair loss!! Every time I shampoo my hair I lose a palm full. Especially across the top. I haven't ever had a problem with hair loss until I started this medication. I am going to my physician tomorrow and demand a new medication.I would only recommend to a bald person. No offense. Thank God for wigs and extensions. F 36 2 months
 5  Mitral Valve Prolapse & A-Fib From the beginning this drug has caused NO side effects. My daily dose is 10 MG, which controls the MVP, but when I feel A-Fib trying to start up, I can up the dose to 20MG. F 72 35 years

 5  Migraines No side effects at all I have taken corgard 40mg q day for 25 years.. It truly gave me my life back!! No migraines at all and I was going to the ER at least four times a week in horrible pain!!! F 52 1 days
 4  Performance anxiety, tremor Very sluggish; easily out of breath; hard to exercise; aerobic exercise seems pointless to even try; diarrhea sometimes Miracle drug for performance anxiety. Slows the heartbeat down to normal when you're in a normally fearful situation like public speaking. Even if you try to make yourself scared you can't. For tremor (essential tremor in my case) it works fairly well but is not 100% effective (maybe 50%). That's assuming I'm relaxed. For essential tremor due to great stress or pressure it is more like 90% effective as it really curbs the major shakes. The side effects are not horrible but are the reason I won't take it daily.

 1  Hyperthyroidism, Migraine Breathlessness, hair loss, extreme fatigue I didnt like this drug at all. It slowed down my heart rate but caused extreme fatigue which badly affected my daily life. Pale, puffy face, huge shadows under eyes..sort of drug user apperance.After 2-4 hr after taking it I had a feeling that I cant breathe...sort of too tight clothes feeling. And hair loss - mostly top of scalp. Then hair started regrow sort of curly with reddish tinge. Migraines? They got worse, lasting up 72hr. Disaster not drug. F 36 30 days
80 MG 1X D
 5  Migraines Low heart rate, cold all the time, fatigue This med gave me my life back. It decreased my migraines from several per week to only 1-2 per month. After about 7-8 years it became less effective and I had to add many more meds and surgeries to try and keep a life worth living. F 45 15 years

 5  vascular mediated syncipy None, except after a year I have had some urinary retention problems... maybe unrelated. I have a low heart rate and experience fainting symptoms during my sleep. that condition was occurring every night I had just finished a significant mentally testing effort... such as finishing a big project at work... post stress anxiety... was on metropolol before, but my specialist changed me to nadolol and have not had an event since!!! it worked well for me.take at night before going to bed...

 1  Long QT Syndrome, A-fib Dizziness, cold hands & feet, hair thinning/loss My heart went into atrial fibrillation in my 7th month of my pregnancy and it was then discovered that I have long QT syndrome. Thankfully, my son was born healthy! I was put on Nadolol a few months after he was born. Now, almost 3 years later, I know why my hair is horribly thin, my hands and feet are constantly cold and why I have dizzy spells. The Nadolol has caused me all these problems. I was never told any of the possible side effects with this medication by my cardiologist or my pharmacist. Unacceptable! I am going to wean myself off and rely on a change in diet for my heart issues. I went to see a dermatologist recently to voice my concerns over my hair thinning/loss and she said that since I didn't notice a 'change' with my hair within 4 months of using the medication, that it couldn't possibly be the Nadolol! Baloney! F 29 3 years

 2  Sinus Tachycardia, migraine seizure Heart rate has not decreased. Migraines absent for a few hours only. Sleep walking. Increased fatigue. Nausea, increased loss of appetite. So far, I am not impressed with this medicine. Everyone keeps telling me to give it time, but I will be speaking with my neurologist. A heart rate of 130+ is just not acceptable to me. F 36 4 days

 1  Rate control - A-fib Terrible panic attacks would come over me without warning. I thought I was cracking up and never suspected the nadolol since I figured all beta-blockers were the same. The panic attacks worsened to the point that I was winding up in the emergency room on a weekly basis with blood pressure as high as 190/110. I finally decided that perhaps the nadolol was the culprit. I asked my doc to switch beta-blockers and he put me on betaxolol. Within 2 weeks, the panic attacks all but disappeared. I've been on betaxolol for nearly 3 years now, and I am so much happier now than when I was on the nadolol. I'd never say that nadolol is bad for everyone, nor would I say that betaxolol is good for everyone. But, I will say with absolute certainty that not all beta-blockers are the same! If you're having trouble with one, insist that your doctor try another. M 48 1.5 years

 5  blood pressure None My overall health has been positively advanced by Corgard. I weigh the same as I did when I graduated from high school and the medication has not made me gain any additional weight. F 76 11 years

 5  Stage fright, social phobia Weight gain, fatigue, maybe depression. Works like a charm for stage fright and social phobia but at a high price, I've had a steady substantial weight gain over the years and profound loss of energy. But I was desperate for help with social phobia and it was the only thing that helped. It also pretty much cured my migraines. At this point I'm considering tapering off to see what happens as I really need to lose weight because of high cholesterol. I never had a weight problem until I started this drug. In the first couple of months after taking I gained about 15 pounds and have continued to gain at a slower rate over the last 10 plus years. F 54 10 years

 1  Daily Migraine Sufferer I have put on approximately 20 lbs since I started this med. My once thick hair has become so thin I'm concerned it'll all come out before it starts to grow again! My doctors didn't catch this problem! I talked to my neurologist and he missed it. I just finished a bunch of lab work at my family doctor. I was hoping he'd find something...not cancer! Thanks to this site, I have been able to discover so much! Thank you for this site. I am going off my Corgard...Forever!!! F 49 7 months

 1  Blood Pressure control/migraines Am 51 yrs old, have been on this for 3 weeks, have had nausea that won't seem to go away, general loss of interest in things I like to do, and 3 severe migraines since start date. Shortness of breath and BP isn't going down and staying there. I would NOT recommend this to anyone, I tried it because of its possible dual purpose. Horse hockey, It works for very few people and if you are prone to migraines, don't take it. It does help with sleep related troubles but the zombie feeling the next day is not worth this, NOR is the migraines that caused me to miss work. F 51 3 weeks

 2  Migraines/MAV/High Blood Pressure Worsening headaches; extreme lethargy and lack of energy/interest in doing anything; nausea A bit of background on my situation: I've had high BP and migraines for years. It was previously under control with 50 mg of Atenolol per day (worked for about a year). One day, I had sudden dizzines and worsening migraines; numerous tests have concluded it's MAV (migraine associated vertigo), and I have been working from home (unable to drive due to dizziness) for the past 6 months. This is one of about 6 beta blockers/calcium channel blockers I've tried in the past few months. The one positive thing I can say is that it made me sleep VERY damn near knocked me out at any dosage I tried (I'm only 5'5" and weigh 115 pounds). In addition to making me feel like a zombie, it actually seemed to make my headaches/migraines worse in intensity and frequency...not a good combination for me! It also made me nauseous...not fun when I deal with nausea from migraines anyway. I'm back to Atenolol until I find something that works better, I guess. F 25 30 days

CORGARD  (NADOLOL):  Nadolol is used alone or with other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and to prevent chest pain (angina). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. In the management of chest pain, nadolol may also help to reduce the frequency of chest pain episodes and improve your ability to exercise. Nadolol belongs to a class of medications called beta blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural substances such as adrenaline (epinephrine) on the heart and blood vessels. This results in a lowering of heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
