Propranolol Usage

Propranolol (Inderal) is a common medication used to treat hypertension. Propranolol is a sympatholytic non selective beta blocker. It can also be used to help with reducing panic attacks and anxiety. It is also offered under several other generic names but they are made with the same ingredients as the name brand. It is interesting that the Olympic Games donít allow the use of this medication. Many athletes used to take it to help them get through the anxiety of their performance.

Propranolol Dosage

When Propranolol is used for hypertension, it will need to be taken daily. The dose ranges from 120 mg to 320 mg per day. The doctor will start you out with the lowest possible dose. Then it will be increased if necessary to offer the best overall benefits. For individuals with mild anxiety or infrequent panic attacks, a low dose may be taken as needed. There are people though that need to use it daily to keep such concerns under control.

Propranolol Precautions and Side Effects

It is important to always take your dose of this medication. If you skip it for ongoing use, then it can prevent you from getting your health concerns fully under control. This medication can be taken with food or without. Some individuals experience nausea if they take it on an empty stomach. It is a good idea to try to take this medication at the same time every day.

There are quite a few types of medications that Propranolol doesnít mix well with. That is why you should always take the time to fully disclose to your doctor anything you are taking. There are some known side effects including nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, headache, and insomnia. For most patients, these side effects are mild and go away soon after they start using the medication. If they are severe or they linger, make sure you talk to your doctor.
