Thanks for your query.
Nadolol and propanolol are the same class of drugs,non selective b-blockers and for this reason they have same effects .
But for the treatment of portal hypertension that cause esophageal varicess is seen to be more effective the use of propanolol.
Propanolol and nadolol are very effective for the treatemant of blood pressure .
He can take them if they are prescribed from the doctor .
