Propranolol is a treatment for anxiety. When you are anxious, hormones released by the body increase your heart rate, causing you to breathe rapidly and sweat more. Propranolol blocks the actions of these hormones, slowing down your heart rate and reducing symptoms of anxiety.
You can purchase Propranolol tablets online from euroClinix. They can be taken daily or as needed before stressful events.
When you are anxious, your body releases stress hormones, like adrenaline and cortisol, which can increase your heart rate and make you perspire.
Propranolol is a type of medicine called a beta-blocker. It works by blocking the receptors to the hormone adrenaline, reducing symptoms of anxiety, such as a rapid heart rate, sweating, shaking and flushing.
It usually works quite quickly - you should experience results within half an hour to an hour of taking it. Taking it an hour before a stress-inducing event can ensure it has had time to work.
You should always take this medication exactly as directed.
Your doctor will decide whether you need to take it daily or on an as-needed basis. They will also decide if you need to take it for only a few days or regularly over a long period of time.
Propranolol is available from euroClinix in a 40mg dose. For daily use, the typical dose is 40 mg once a day. When used as-needed, it should be taken when you feel anxious or anticipate that you will feel anxious.
You should not take more than three 40 mg doses per day. If you take more than your prescribed dose, seek immediate medical attention.
Tablets should be swallowed whole and taken with food, preferably before a meal. Do not chew or crush the tablets.
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is time for the next dose, in which case you should skip the missed dose and carry on taking your tablets as normal. Do not take two tablets at the same time to make up for a missed dose. Because of the way Propranolol works, taking more than is prescribed can cause serious complications.
As with all medications, Propranolol can cause side effects. However, they will vary from person to person and not everybody will experience them.
The most common side effects of Propranolol include:
These side effects are mild and will usually subside with time. Signs of more serious reactions include shortness of breath with a tightening chest or an irregular heartbeat, or jaundice. If you experience any side effects that are particularly concerning or long-lasting, stop taking this medication immediately and inform your doctor.
A full list of side effects can be found in the patient information leaflet included with this medication.
This medication may not be suitable for everybody.
When completing your online consultation, it is important that you detail your medical history, as well as any medications you are currently taking, as some may interact with Propranolol. This will allow our doctors to safely prescribe this medication, or offer alternatives if Propranolol is not suitable for you.
Propranolol can interact with other beta-blockers, anxiety medications, heart medications, and migraine medications.
Do not take Propranolol if you:
You should tell your doctor before taking this medication if you have diabetes, as it may cause low blood sugar levels.
Ask your doctor about alternatives if you are breastfeeding, pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant.
Do not drink alcohol while taking this medication until you know how it affects you. Both alcohol and Propranolol can lower your blood pressure. Taking both together can lead to drowsiness and dizziness. A significant drop in blood pressure could put you at risk of fainting and possible injury.
