Prior to being pregnant I would take 5-10mg of Propranolol a few times a month for performance anxiety. I have withheld using it so far but it has really hindered me at work. I have a big presentation I need to give this week in front of 150 people and fear getting on stage without taking it. However, I am also nervous about any potential harm to my baby. Can you clarify if it is safe to use propranolol (5mg) infrequently during the remainder of my pregnancy??? thank you very much!!

Hi I think you need to have you medications modified. You may be having allergies to propranolol and I do not think it is advisable to continue taking it. Discuss this with your physician as there may be alternative medications for you. He/she knows your case better and shall find the drug more suitable for your condition. At this point, inform your physician about this. You should take medications to feel better and any side effects have to be reported.
[2][5] In those patients deemed to be at high risk the benefits and infrequent complications of defibrillator therapy are discussed; devices have been implanted in as many as 15% of patients at HCM centers.

Does Propranolol...does that beta blocker make you have major mood swings?....I am having that and wondering if it is this pills doing it to me....does anybody no if they do that to u?
I believe that the benefits pf statins outweigh the risks and have altered my eating lifestyle so to nearly exclude carbohydrates. This has enabled me to continue statin regime while keeping my fasting blood glucose levels at acceptaptable unmedicated levels. My wife on the other hand continues to take Metformin while on the statin drug.
I have had a holter and echo about 15 years ago, and have been on propranolol since then. The propranalol doesn't seem to be particularly helpful, but I have noticed that when I take a buffered aspirin along with it, my rhythm seems to improve. Does anyone have an answer as to why this may occur? Is it an indicator that I may have some blockage that responds to the blood thinning effects in aspirin. Am I at risk of going into heart failure because of the very frequent ectopic beats?
These are new to me, I`ve only had them for a month. They started when I started taking Propranolol 20mg/day for cardilogist suggested high bp[140/90,135/85]. I started to get side effects to the drug so he lowered it. I went to a bp clinic and suggested that I should`nt be on it.[ Suggest lowering salt and weight first to see if that help. Also lower anxiety that I was experiecing from the side effects. I toke the lowered dosage for 13 days when all of a sudden I stared to experiece pvc`s.
She explained the benefits of Propranolol for anxiety and panic disorder and indeed warned me never to take the two drugs together, i.e. don't take your propranolol and Xanax before bed. My ultimate question is this really necessary? Isn't this much ado about nothing? It is quite clear she is caring and is coming from a great place.
I don't remember which one my doctor said he was going to call in (I think it's propranolol), but I was just wondering if there is a beta blocker that works best... or do they all pretty much work the same?
I've had the entire workup, though its been 3 years (echo, Holter, event), all was normal on those studies and i have blood work done annually, and lipids are good, as is glucose levels...Cardio CRP levels have always been normal to.. 1. What would be the benefits/risks of taking a beta blocker?.....I would give anything, even that winning lottery ticket from last weeks Megamillions IF!!! i would have had it, to make these palpitations go away....
), then about one hour before the event, they can take propranolol or atenolol. Propranolol seems to work better for occasional problems, while atenolol may work better for continued problems. If their symptoms are more cognitive (they worry about their performance or the judgment of others), then they can take alprazolam one hour before the event. If they have a mix of these symptoms then a combination of these medications may be more helpful.
Drug interactions which may increase or lower the levels of the drug include digitalis, propranolol, cimettidine, amiodarone, and smoking. It is hard for me to give you specific advise as to the treatment of your PVC's. It would depend upon how disturbing the PVC's are to you, what previous drugs you have tried and what your underlying medical condition is.
How long have you been taking meds? Sometimes they can take weeks before you feel the benefits. Insomnia's a great friend of anxiety/depression, it seems to always come with them. The fear of insomnia is the main cause of it I believe. If you try to forget about sleep it will be very hard at first, but in time, you probably will accept that nothing much wrong is happening to you. Of course you'll feel tired ~ but it won't kill you or send you nuts!
An aspirin (75 mg to 100 mg) per day has been shown to be beneficial for all patients with stable angina that have no problems with its use. Beta blockers (eg. carvedilol, propranolol, atenolol etc. are some few examples) have a large body of evidence in morbidity and mortality benefits (fewer symptoms and disability and live longer) and short-acting nitroglycerin medications are used for symptomatic relief of angina.
antidepressants (in the tricyclic category, specifically Amitriptyline or Nortriptyline); anticonvulsants (such as valproic acid or topiramate); and beta blockers (such as nadolol or propranolol). If none of those work, then options include: Botox injections or calcium channel blockers.
I'm going to give it some more time to let my body adjust to not being on the med, and then make a decision about whether the benefits of the toprol are worth the hassle of the side effects. Right now my impression is that they are not. Maybe toprol would relieve the PACs at a higher dose than I was on, but I was beginning to have distressing side effects (dry mouth, trouble breathing at night, cold hands) and that could only get worse at a higher dose.
My blood pressure has always been perfect. My Dr. took it down a notch with propranolol. It's a beta blocker. I take it once a day. I've been on it for 4 months now and haven't even had a nuisance headache! I feel great! I've had absolutely no side effects! I would check into it if I were you. Migraines are so horrible!
Modafinil may increase the levels/effects of CYP2C19 substrates. Example substrates include citalopram, diazepam, methsuximide, phenytoin, propranolol, and sertraline. CYP3A4 inducers: CYP3A4 inducers may decrease the levels/effects of modafinil. Example inducers include aminoglutethimide, carbamazepine, nafcillin, nevirapine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, and rifamycins. CYP3A4 inhibitors: May increase the levels/effects of modafinil.
but for every one of those there are literally MILLIONS of people that it benefits and actually fights what we fear...a heart attack. While there is always that unlucky person that gets struck by lightning, or that person that wins millions of dollars (I wish I was that person), none of these scenerios is really that likely. I know I am kind of oversimplifing this, but I also can't argue with the fact that I am still here three years later. Now, I still deal with anxiety...
Here is a recent study that confirms the basic premise that the more the liver is damaged the more difficult it is to successfully treat. But the benefits outweigh the risks as your only other option is a liver transplant which is a major life changing event. And everyone responses differently. So the only way to know if treatment will work is to try it.
Since then I've been taking a low (I believe) dosage of spironolactone, propranolol and furosemide to control my blood pressure and water retention. Me & my man really want to have a baby within the next few years, and we're concerned about the possible complications/risks arising from this: 1. My menstrual cycle is very irregular (I often go several months without a period. Never been on the pill/injection etc. Never been pregnant) 2.
Treatment involves beta adrenergic blockers such as propranolol (Inderal), alpha2-adrenergic agonists such as clonidine, antidepressants, valproic acid (an anticonvulsant and mood stabilizer), and benzodiazepines (sedatives and anti-anxiety drugs). Hope I have provided you with sufficient information. In case you need any more, then pls post us. Take care and regards.
I take methimazle and propranolol. I had graves before I became pregnant. This was not a planned pregnancy. I actually had a doctor appointment with a obgyn this week to get on birth control. I found out that I had graves in January. I do not like the fact of taking medication while pregnant. I do need the propranolol becasue the heart rate is still not under control. There are so many side effects to these drugs. I know that some women do take thyroid medication while pregnant.
Hey Lulu, New research by the University of Melbourne (just published July 3rd - neurology) on Botox to treat MS tremors, though it was only a small double blind and further research will come, it looks quite promising. [Dr. van der Walt noted that improvement was particularly apparent for postural and kinetic components of tremor. "Both of these tremor components are critical when performing any functional task.
He didn't prescribe any new medications. I have been taking Propranolol for about 6 years because my heart races randomly, but not often. Could the Propranolol be causing this? I don't have any other symptoms except that weird feeling in my chest. It is worse when I sit down or lie down. It stopped for about 2 weeks, but started back up. The doctor said I was under too much stress, but there has to be some medication I can take to stop this feeling or at least minimize it.
It's not easy to do, but keep at it, and it gets easier to do for a bit longer at a time, and it takes your mind off of your heart. It has other benefits for your mind as well.
