Yes aslongest your not taking any medication, u can drink, but dont abuse is bad for your heart, & head... Beta blockers are good for lower bp and heart rate, or after heart attack or heart surgery, just take care eat healthy, n acohol might be good for ur heart or might be bad for ur heart, talk to your doctor.. Ask for advice... Best of luck...
These hormones prepare the body for the “fight or flight response” by making the heart beat faster and constricting blood vessels to get more blood to the core of the body instead of the extremities. Constriction of blood vessels and increase in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> does raise blood pressure, but only temporarily – when the stress reaction goes away, blood pressure returns to its pre-stress level.
Stop all of the drugs and their debilitating and potentially life-threatening side effects, and get swimming goggles and start lap-swimming at a pool for 45 minutes a day stopping every 5 minutes to let your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> relax. You will see a steady drop in your resting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> over weeks and months and, if you continue the program, you won't need Beta Blockers or Calcium Channel-Blockers because your heart-rate will be down to where your doctor will have no reason to prescribe them.
so my doc just prescribed me propranolol for my fast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> beat. its only 10 mg two times a day. i hate taking meds and just wondering if this is a pretty safe med to take. i know 10 mg is a low dose but im a small person, 100 lbs, 24 years old. i guess my biggest fear is my heart rate and/or bp will drop to low. so is this a safe med to try?
Can I take such doses of propranolol (20mg-30mg daily) for prolonged time?? My resting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> is 72-75 (slighlty lower when on propranolol) and my BP is 130-80 (120-80 when on propranolol). When I swim I observed that my heart beats less forcefully but I can do my routine without any problems. The only side effect that I observed is that my hands get numb when I sleep and are slightly cold in the morning.
Of course all blood work came back ok and I didnt have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack but they said that when I just casually walk my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> is to high so they put me on Propranolol. I had a bad bout with Amytriptaline 3 years ago and Ive never taken any meds but 1 since out of fear of dying. Since I have been on the med things are much better but its like my heart is fighting the meds to skip. I just feel uncomfortable and still out of breath when I walk.
Does anyone know how propranolol effects exercise? I do triathlon and train using a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> rate monitor. I am wondering if I would be able to progress athletically given my heart rate would be lowered substantially?
OK, PLEASE i am asking you to NOT STOP taking the Paxil cold turkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You will go into withdrawal and may suffer greatly. If you think that your having a hard time now then just wait until your brain starts to crave the Paxil and then you'll know what is is like to suffer. Many people on this web-site have done the same thing that you are posing to do and have screamed out to anyone to hear and help them.
My heart rate was like 90-110 bpm when i was at the doctor and she says that there is nothing wrong with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> except the elevated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span>. During the day my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> is always high especially after i wake up It always calms down a little after i work out. I am a little lost idk what is causing this. Any opinion is more than welcome. My question is can anxiety cause constant elevated heart rate?
I originally was taking it for anxiety, but now i feel as though it is good for my drug problem and saves me from having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack. Is this true? Because I feel as though the propranolol slows down my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> and makes my pulse lower than it would be if i just did coke. I'm trying to fix my problem but i want to know if the combination of coke and propranolol is dangerous. Please provide me with an answer.
I have Graves disease and was put on Methimzole and Propranolol. The combination relieved my hyper symptoms and I was losing weight while on those meds. Eventually it tapered off. I have read thatbwhen you are Hyper you eat much more, I didn't find that to be true, I was so hyper, I could barely eat. I loss over 15 lbs. Once me levels lowered, they did keep me on the dosage ( it was 10 mg per day).
I take propranolol 80 mg er once daily. Objective is to maintain a resting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> of 50-60 bpm since I have grade three varices caused from portal hypertension a symptom of stage C decompensated cirrhosis. Since beginning this new medications (taken before bed) I wake up many morning with my heart pounding really hard then after about an half hour it returns to normal. Could this be a side effect of the medication or something else? Thanks for any information.
Does anyone take propranolol for anxiety and panic attacks? I've had crippling anxiety for my whole life. Antidepressants increase it to the point where I'm in such a state I almost pass out from hypervenitlating. I've heard propranolol is good for this, and is effective.
Then you can make copies of them for any other doctors you may see down the line. When you wean from propranolol and find you have returning symptoms, you can always start it up again. But you should talk to your doctor on his/her thoughts on how to wean, if indeed he/she even agrees that it is a good idea to wean.
One night when I was about to sleep, I checked my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> and it was 62. I heard normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> should be between 60 - 100. Mine seems to be slipping down. This gave me a small panic attack and my anxiety is back. I heard that slow heart rates can cause sudden death. I am afraid for my health. I cannot stop on Carbimazole and the little Propranolol that I take. Should I approach a specialist or do you thing that this condition is benign?
My blood pressure is pretty normal with this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span>. I freaked out and checked my husbands <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> and bp and his also was 62 while just sitting. But it really freaks me out cause i'm used to having a 80's heart rate. Could it be low because i did alot of sleeping or does it sound like something serious?

Since BB should, in most case, actually lower your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span>, and you get the bigeminy/trigeminy only at low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> rates, perhaps expect an increase initially? I've been taking 40mg of Nadolol for like 20 years and I think that it's a wonderful drug for those of us who suffer from IST type issues and palps that seem to flare up with stress and caffeine and sugar intake, etc. I've never felt bad when taking this, never had fatigue or anything.
I take some Propranolol 10 mg x 3 a day, my dose was increase from 20mg to 30 mg but since it was increase last january,the only thing it's doing for my pounding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> and tachycardia is to lower even more my blood pressure and increasing my resting heart rate... I have severe anxiety not under control for now and the only time my blood pressure increase is when i'm out of the house, in a social situation or have to go to the dentist for example...
So i was recently given propranolol 4x10mg daily for anxiety and was wondering if i would experience weight gain on such a low dose? I would also like to lose weight, but with me not being able to get my heart in target zone, im wondering will i find it hard to lose weight? Also how safe is exercising/weight lifting on this medication. Feels really weird that my heart does not pound when running!
If you ask for a 24 hour EKG test, the doctor will see if your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> drops during the night. If it does, maybe you are just constantly stressed? A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> of 130 while taking 160 mg of propranolol is fairly high, but with normal echo, normal blood pressure (not low), and normal sinus rhythm/tachycardia, cardiac causes for your rapid heart rate is more or less ruled out, and maybe you should visit a GP or internist for further testing?
my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> also went up at a rates similar to yours, i noticed this on a hot day, or after mild exertion, or slightly stressful incident (e.g. traffic!). only on the rare occasion when this happened - if it hadn't gone down in an hour - i would reach for a quarter tablet of betablocker, just to help. esp if it was keeping me awake...
People with normal blood pressure and normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> will often poorly tolerate beta blockers. It would be interesting to know how your blood pressure is at heart rate 58. It may be either too high or too low. Please keep in touch with your doctor regarding this. What you experience is unacceptable and I would refuse to leave the doctor's office until he provides an explaination and treatment.
For example, can I take one before I go out of the house to last me, and just not take anymore for days, maybe take one a week, or 2 a day, mixing and matching....is it okay to treat this drug like that? Also, I workout every day my target <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> is 165 as I am 30 years old and was wondering how this will affect my workout? Would it be okay / safe to just wait til right after my workout to take one?
I read an article this morning on how nerve damage can effect the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span>. If my blood work is fine and my echo was fine and I have had a CT then I dont know what else it could be. I was getting Neuropathy a few months ago and it went away with Acupuncture. I wonder if I am just still having issues with my heart. Question is how do you fix nerve damage? What is an ablation? I see that a lot on this site.
he also prescribed me propranolol , which i'm terrified to take because it drops BP and your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span>. although seeing my primary today also insisted that i take it and it could help with my constant anxiety, i've been on paxil cr 25mg for about 8-9 years. SO, my doctors want me to up my paxil cr from 25mg, to 37.5mg. because i'm too afraid to change my med again and have a bad reaction id rather wait and see a physciatrist. also was given 10 pills of ativan 0.
Propranolol has several effects on the body apart as acting as prophylaxis for migraine and tension headaches. It can slow down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span>, sweating, and cause sleep related problems. Hence, if you want to stop the drug, then please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
The only adverse effect is it will lower your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rate</span> and make you tired. I stopped the beta blockers when the heart stopped racing. I took my pulse for a few days (a couple of times a day) and when it was down between 60-70 bpm, I stopped the beta blockers. Although I did take one tablet (20mg) just when I was going hypo (around 5 week mark) as the thyroid fired up (which is normal) before it died off....this gave me a fast heartrate for a day.So thats why I took it.
