Common Questions and Answers about Propranolol side effects anxiety


Avatar n tn I just got Propranolol prescribed to me by my doctor for anxiety. I was reading side effects online and decreased sex drive and having a hard time orgasming were listed. I used to be on Seroquel and for the 3 years I took it I could not reach an orgasm. Will Propranolol have the same effect? Or is there a better medicine for me?
Avatar n tn My partner was today prescribed Propranolol for anxiety. Can you tell me how long it will be until these take effect? He was hoping immediately. Also, I was concerned to read that Propranolol may lead to depression. Can you shed any light?

Avatar n tn and you may end up with some significant hypotension and adverse side effects. If you are not being seen by a psychiatrist...I would recommend that as a starting point. Either way...I'm in total agreement that a second opinion seems warranted here. Good luck.
Avatar f tn If I get any problems I will get another BP test at the chemist, I also have to watch the muscle weakness side effects as I have a form of Muscular Dystrophy.
Avatar m tn Could you give me some advice in tappering off propranolol? What beta blocker would be a better solution(less side effects like depression,weight gain)?How can I lose the weight I gained, because it makes me feel bad about myself.Is it water retention or fat? Would supplements like oxyelitepro help? Is there any alternative solution to control physical symptoms or I have to keep on taking propranolol?
Avatar f tn i was on 150mg sertraline and 80mg propanolol slow release have stopped taking both two weeks ago how long does it take for side effects of this take to stop
1243620 tn?1274794297 If you have many physical features accompanying your A/P, Propranolol would likely serve as a useful adjunct to either an antidepressant or anxiolytic. Having wrote that, Propranolol carries a significantly higher rate of side effects compared to other beta-blockers, and for that reason it is rarely the first one selected. Additionally, it carries many drug-drug interactions, particularly when combined with psychiatric drugs. Propranolol is the prototype for the beta-blocker class.
Avatar f tn i have recently been taking prozac 20mg per day and 40mg of propranolol for my anxiety since the prozac has started kicking in ive started to notice servere lack in concentration and feel on edge all the time,kind of a high feeling,but then sometimes i can feel really tired all of a sudden..are these normal side effects? will they go away when my body starts getting used to the med?i also feel very on edge like i need to let the steam out.
Avatar m tn i would not understand why your doc only perscribed this to you for 2 months usually they keep you on for 6 months even when everything is all when and keep going to 12 months than wean you off it.... please do not stop any anxiety/anitdepressent suddenly it will cause horrific side effects u need to be weaned of but your doc should be taking good care of you on that.... i hope all goes well n remember it all takes time usually u wont feel the effects within 4 to 6 weeks some -ppl longer....
Avatar m tn I'm not finding much information on the side effects of this med. It could be possible that the sweating and hair loss could be side effects of this med. You can call your Dr or pharmacist. Either of them can tell you if these are side effects of this med.
Avatar n tn Will any doctor prescribe propranolol to me for need based public speaking anxiety, or is the only place the psychiatrist?
Avatar f tn i take prozac and love it after 20 years of trying everything elseā€¦long/short, it helps with all but ANXIETY so she prescribed me Propranolol? just 10 mg 2Xs a day. i worried about ALL the side effects tho, should i be?
Avatar f tn You mentioned that you have been on inderal for 15 years and that the side effects are "still the same".. what are the side effects you are experiencing?
Avatar n tn but how about the more serious side effects like bradycardia and bronchial spasm etc...? Are these very rare occurances? I am a 41 year old female and all of my tests have been normal... stress, echo, ekg etc... Thanks so much for your reply.
769503 tn?1238499921 I would prefer Losartan, which seems to have a superior action with few side effects. The dose of Ramipril is half of what can be prescribed daily (20 mg). It is NOT o.k. to take more propanalol. I would discuss with your physician the idea of eliminating both drugs and going to simply Losartan.
534360 tn?1234725515 today is day one on clexa hope it works without side effects slight runs today but ok touch wood how long did any of u take to feel a slight improvement i know its 4 to 6 weeks but the generally start to work b4 that yes??
Avatar f tn 5 mg xanax but my dr decided to try propranolol 40mg instead because i started to have high blood pressue. i read these two meds arent safe together. has or does anyone take them together?
Avatar m tn My blood pressure is running very low on it and my pulse rate is a lot lower than on the Propranolol, BUT the side-effects are not anxiety symptoms like I was saying yesterday, I had very bad muscles tension on my face, jaw pain, throbbing headache and more dizziness than on the Propranolol. Today I try the Propranolol again, will try to reset my dosage like you... I mean that tweaking my dosage insistead of taking higher dose less often...
Avatar n tn Hi tarmarti, Yes, provigil can cause all of your symptoms. 5% anxiety 5% insomnia 2% palpitation 2% tachycardia I copied below the side effect profile of provigil. You can take the tablet in the morning, so it will have less effect on your sleep. I would recommend to cut down the dosage since you have anxiety and insomnia that are potentially disabling.
Avatar f tn I would seek help Immediately. Though 2 weeks of propranolol wouldn't hurt you I would say you could probably have Incurred a bad side effect from the Propranolol.
Avatar n tn I've taken it before, during, and after workouts with no ill side effects. sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.
Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
Avatar f tn After being on this med a few days I discovered that the side effects are terrible. I asked my Cardiologist if I could take only 1 pill a day and he said yes. Yesterday my hair started falling out and Im finding that Im really depressed so I want to go off of it. When I dropped down to one pill a day from 2 my heart rate instantly spiked again only when I move. Im more anxious and depressed and I know its because of the med.

Avatar m tn propanolol 80mg 1 daily is what i was on for fast heart rate caused by anxiety, they had no side effects, they lower blood pressure and heart rate, doctor will only give you those if your bp is high 140 + cuz if you take them with lower bp they will make you dizzy and start to faint,
Avatar n tn If you get to feeling too terrible and can't function, call the doc and ask if your side effects are too much. I had a problem with Verapamil and was finally told to stop taking it.
Avatar f tn -). Free free to ask any questions Btw get off subs. They are the worst. The side effects can be awful and it stays in your brain forever. They were never meant to be taken everyday. They were to have for a quick less painless withdrawal maybe 10 days max. Just an unsolicited opinion. No judgement at all.
