A predictably dangerous side effect of nadolol that constitutes a contraindication to its clinical use in susceptible patients is the induction of



A Hypertension
B Cardiac arrhythmia

C Asthmatic attacks
D Respiratory depression

Ans. C Asthmatic attacks

The chief danger of therapy with beta -adrenergic blocking agents, such as nadolol and propranolol, is associated with the blockade itself. Beta adrenergic blockade results in an increase in airway resistance that can be fatal in asthmatic patients. Hypersensitivity reactions such as rash, fever, and purpura are rare and necessitate discontinuation of therapy
