    propranolol

    I would just like to ask if anyone would tell me how they are getting
    on with taking propranolol.
    I have been prescribed them from GP. 10mg and I can take one tablet up to three times a day.
    I have problems at home and am really anxious at the moment

    Re: propranolol

    I am taking 1 10mg tablet 4 times a day, but I am going to see if the doctor will put me on slow release ones tomorrow as I am having problems with the ups and downs with it getting working and wearing off.

    Apart from that it does stop my trembles, both the inside and outside ones, and Im finding it ok to drive still. I get a little tired in the afternoons, but not the drowsy fall asleep tired. Its suiting me quite well I just need to sort out the doesage issues

    I had these some years ago, just watch out for your bp dropping and feinting on them. I did, in the middle of an undergrad practical at uni lol

    But they did. Ring my heart rate down

    I started with several a day but found it left gaps particularly overnight.

    So was put on single daily dose of slow release.

    Re: propranolol

    I have been taking propranolol for the last 3 weeks, a slow release one I have started to suffer with really bad hot flushes the last couple of days and my doctor and upped the dose this morning and has said that his should help, has anyone else had this and if so how long before it started to work.

    Did you start it as a none slow release first?

    As to how long. Well I have been on it for 7 years as a life saver. The slow release version for all of that except the first year.
