Propranolol


Propranolol 10mg Tablets

Propranolol is often prescribed for:-

• Heart problems
• Angina
• Hypertension
• Tremors
• Migraines
• Anxiety and Panic

The main benenefit of Propranolol is that it slows the heart. This promotes calmness (beneficial for anxiety problems) and means the heart works less (good for heart problems).

Propranolol and Anxiety


Propranolol (Inderal) enters the brain better than other beta blockers and its unique abilty to cross the blood-brain barrier makes it one of the most prescribed beta blockers.

However this unique property may be why propranolol causes more central nervous system side effects than other beta blockers do.

Things such as: hallucinations, nightmares and depression can be more common with Propranolol

Along with the general side effects common to most beta blockers: weight gain, tiredness, slow heartbeat, dizziness, nausea, decreased sex drive, other side effects of Propranolol include:-

• Shortness of breath
• Swelling of ankles and feet
• Cold hand and feet
• Skin problems
