Most likely your heart rate will increase a bit, due to the withdrawal of medication and the pregnancy. You may or may not have a return of MVPS symptoms. I don't know why you would have a heart attack but if you are worried you should call your doctor. He can also answer any questions about continuing the medication during pregnancy.
I was wondering if you have noticed any rotten side affects with the Inderal? I'm thinking about start taking it or Atenolol for my tachycardia that I get and extra beats, but I'm kind of leary about starting a new med. especially one that is related to the heart!
I have been taking Inderal LA-80 for about 20 years for atrial fibrillation. Because of increased events, my Cardiologist suggested I switch to Betapace. I have been on it for about 3 weeks. 240 mg/day the first week nearly knocked me out. I am now taking 120 mg/day. I still have the same side-effects, although not quite as severe. (Dizziness, ringing in the ears, shortness of breath, kind of prickling feeling all over my body, extreme fatigue) I can relieve it somewhat with coffee or taking with food. Am I allergic? Should I cut the dosage in half again? Could the problem be from Inderal withdrawal?
These are not typical side-effects for beta-blockers or for beta-blocker withdrawal. We do always suggest discussing specific medication concerns and reactions with your doctor.
I take inderal LA 60mg once a day for palpitations and tachycardia. Since being on it I have noticed that I am more fatigued and dream more at night. My main concern though is weight gain and I feel like I am more forgetful then I use to be. I have been on it for 2 years and have gained approx. 10 lbs. I do not eat anymore now than I use to and actually I believe that I am eating less. I have also noticed that I forget things and have a difficult time recalling things at times. I just don't feel like I retain things like I use to. I know the inderal slows down your heart rate, can it also slow down your metabolism and cognitive function also? I am 39 years old. If anyone else has experienced these concerns or has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it.
A friend of mine who happens to be a musician recommended me to take some Inderal 10 mg about 1 hour before doing what I consider to be an important presentation (speech, demonstration, etc). According to him it would improve dramatically my performance. I tried last week and it really worked. I tried seven days later for another important speech and it worked again. The only side effect I noticed was some kind of distant feeling. I am trying to read everything I can on the Internet about Inderal. I have read many, many things: from people saying is a very safe drug to technical sheets saying I have to be careful in case I have a cardiac condition. So far, I am a healthy man. My question is: is it safe to take this drug just once in a while, whenever I consider it could help my performance and just wait for the next occasion? Is it that safe? Let's say I take 10 mg every two or three weeks: am I running a risk? Please, I apprecciate any comment on this.
