    it certainly slowed my pulse down significantly and reduced my blood pressure as well which can't be a bad thing.... unless it drops to nothing! Strange thing is how different doctors seem to prescribe different doses..... I was put on 3 x 40mg/day.

    Hiya,

    I too have been put on propanalol today, also 10mg 3 times a day. The doctor said I can take them when I feel like I need it, is this something that other people have done? Or do you take them regardless of how you're feeling, anxious or not?

    Thanks,

    Steph

    Im on same dosage, Kev1979, 2 times 10mg
    Seems to be doing the trick but it might give you crazy dreams if you take em near bedtime =]
