I have suffered from insomnia for years adn recently I was put on propranolol for akathisia related to one of my other medications. I am having major insomnia now- only sleeping 2-3 hours a night- it is crazy. Is the longer acting dose of this associated with less insomnia by any chance? any suggestions? I am on the immediate release ones.
I don't believe the side effect of the long acting propranolol is any less than the immediate release one. I would recommend letting your doctor know about the insomnia that is being caused by the propranolol and possibly changing therapy.
