I don't recall any other side effects. Your heart rate will be much slower (and BP). All I remember is just wanting to sleep. I don't take it anymore, but I might ask my dr about going on it again. And when I was on it I did ask my dr about having drinks with it. You can in moderation but still ask your dr. Everyone is different so you may have different side effects...Hope this helps you.
Hi, i have neeb on propranolol for 3 months, first i would take 1 a day (80mg) to help me with my hyperventilation but it did not help. So then my GP said to take 2 a day, now i am feeling a lot better, it does not make me feel tired but a little weak may be at times.
I was put on propranolol for my PTSD and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! I am not afraid to sleep now and do not panic!! Also these help my headaches and chest pain.I would not drink with them,cause I got dizzy and threw up all over!!But it DOES help the anxiety and the sever PTSD symptoms such as the flashbacks,anxiety and nightmares.It also calmed my anger down!!
I was on Xanax for many years for anxiety and panic attacts. I'm also a nurs. My dr prescribed propranolol 10mg twice a day. Yes it does make me tired BUT......it is so much safer than Xanax. Getting off Xanax can have fatal results. So I think taking Propranolol is thebetter choice. My heart rate is slower and feel so much more relaxed.
Just wanted to let you know you posted on a really old thread. That's a common thing to do when new to the site. I always tell people to just peek at the date, that way your advice will be seen by more people, as most people seem to pass the older threads by!
