Propranolol For Alzheimer's Disease
Propranolol,a drug used to treat high blood pressure, effectively controls agitation in alzheimer
patients . One study used 80 to 560 milligrams of propranolol daily to
treat agitated alzheimer patients,who were not responding to conventional drugs.
The agitation was effectively controlled without sedation
Another study reports that more than 67 percent of
agitated alzheimer patients respond within two weeks on 10 to 80 milligrams of
propranolol daily. Agitation is controlled for as long as 14 months .
