View Full Version : prop question

14-03-08, 16:57
Have been taking propanolol for 2 years and just wondered how many is safe to take in one day if they come in 10 mg tabs.
What is the limit for the day.
Bearing in mind feel sedated quickly by them but need them as adrenaline control is what bodie needs.

Im on 10mg 3 times a day,but doc said to take 2 tabs 3 times a day if needed,ur better off askin ur doctor about that one

I have 40 mg tabs of propanolol which I can take three times a day along with other meds. However, agree with Claire, always check with your GP even a wee phone call to the surgery rather than a visit can answer your question.

its a beta blocker used mainly for blood pressure etc but can work on the physical symptoms of anxiety but doesnt help the mental side. For example if you have the racing heart etc it may help

Thanks joy x for explaining
no i don't get that many physical symptoms, except for rushing to loo often!! tis the pyschological ones need help for most
Physical ones i just put on the back burner, have to :(

They didnt work for me because i dont get any physical symptoms just the feelings of wanting to run and extreme tension.
Actually been feeling better the last 3 days, hardly dare think the meds are working at last
