Re: Propranolol and exercise?

I used to take 40mgs twice daily, and as I used to exercise alot I asked my doctor. She said light exercise and my salsa dancing shouldn't be affected but harder cardio workouts (like my boxercise and circuits) could be affected. Nothing dangerous just because the heart is regulated it cannot keep up with the extra demand (for oxygen) on high cardio impact exercise, so you fatigued alot quicker. And this I found to be true, apart from the salsa dancing once a week, I had to quit the boxecise and circuits. I ditched the propanolol recently, and energy levels are (albeit slowly) returning. This is not to say it will happen like this for everyone.
