More information

  • Usage

    Propranolol belongs to a class of medications known as nonselective beta-adrenergic receptor blocking agents, sometimes also referred to as beta blockers. Because of its lack of specificity, it differs from more selective beta blockers such as atenolol, Bystolic, and metoprolol. Propranolol causes an antihypertensive effect (i.e. lower blood pressure) and also reduces cardiac output. Propranolol also has antimigraine and antitremor effects although the mechanism of how it causes these effects is unknown.I am text block. Click edit button to change this text.

  • Propranolol – Side Effects

    Side effects can occur in people who are taking propranolol medication. Side effects include, but are not limited to, a drop in heart rate (bradycardia), low blood pressure (hypotension), lightheadedness, dizziness, and bronchospasm. Propranolol should be avoided by people with a hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to the medication. Propranolol should not be used by people with impaired hepatic or renal function unless instructed to do so by their medical provider. Propranolol can interact with other medications as well and questions about drug-drug interactions as well as propranolol’s side effects should be directed to one’s medical provider and pharmacist prior to use.

  • Cost Information

    Propranolol is not an over-the-counter (OTC) medication and requires a prescription from a licensed medical provider in the US – a service available through Push Health. At many pharmacies, propranolol costs under forty cents per pill. Propranolol coupons may be available and the cost of propranolol pills may be covered by some insurance plans. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patient

  • Dosage

    When taken orally, propranolol is absorbed quickly but also metabolized quickly by the liver. Peak plasma concentrations of propranolol occur 1 to 4 hours after being taken orally. Protein-rich foods improve the bioavailability of propranolol. Most of the circulating propranolol in the body is bound to proteins in the plasma. Propranolol is primarily excreted in the urine and the plasma half-life is generally from 3 to 6 hours. The half-life of propranolol is often prolonged in elderly people. Inderal, the branded version, contains propranolol hydrochloride, and appears as hexagonal-shaped scored tablets in a range of colors, depending on the dose. Inderal (propranolol) tablets should be stored at 20° to 25° C in a well-closed container.

  • Propranolol for Anxiety

    Many people wonder if propranolol can be taken for anxiety and social anxiety in particular. While rumor has it that propranolol does help people with anxiety, one study failed to find a definitive benefit. Given that some people continue to report that propranolol for anxiety does have some benefit, larger studies need to be done to look for more evidence of this association before any benefit will be accepted by the medical community.
