What is propranolol?
Propranolol is in a group of drugs called beta-blockers. Beta-blockers affect the heart and circulation.

Propranolol is used to treat tremors, angina (chest pain), hypertension (high blood pressure), heart rhythm disorders, and other heart or circulatory conditions. It is also used to treat or prevent heart attack, and to reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches.

Propranolol may also be used for other purposes not listed here.

Important information about propranolol
You should not use this medication if you are allergic to propranolol, or if you have asthma or certain heart conditions, especially second or third degree heart block. Do not stop taking propranolol without first talking to your doctor. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse.

If you need to have any type of surgery, you may need to temporarily stop using propranolol. Be sure the surgeon knows ahead of time that you are using propranolol.

Avoid drinking alcohol. It may increase your blood levels of propranolol.
Propranolol is only part of a complete program of treatment for hypertension that may also include diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely if you are being treated for hypertension.

Hypertension often has no symptoms, so you may not even feel that you have high blood pressure. Continue using this medicine as directed, even if you feel well. You may need to use blood pressure medication for the rest of your life.

Before taking propranolol
You should not use this medication if you are allergic to propranolol, or if you have asthma or certain heart conditions, especially second or third degree heart block.

If you have certain conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely use this medication. Before taking propranolol, tell your doctor if you have:

bronchitis, emphysema, or other breathing disorders;

diabetes;

low blood pressure;

a heart problem such as heart block, sick sinus syndrome, slow heart rate, or congestive heart failure;

depression;

liver or kidney disease;

a thyroid disorder;

pheochromocytoma; or

problems with circulation (such as Raynaud's syndrome).

FDA pregnancy category C. This medication may be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Propranolol can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use propranolol without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

How should I take propranolol?
Take propranolol exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts or for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Take propranolol with a full glass of water.

Take propranolol at the same time every day.

Do not crush, chew, break, or open an extended-release propranolol capsule. Swallow the pill whole. It is specially made to release medicine slowly in the body. Breaking or opening the pill would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time.

To be sure you get the correct dose, measure the liquid with a marked measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

Do not skip doses or stop taking propranolol without first talking to your doctor. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse.

To be sure propranolol is helping your condition, your blood pressure will need to be checked on a regular basis. It is important that you not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor.

If you need to have any type of surgery, tell the surgeon that you are using propranolol. You may need to briefly stop using propranolol before having surgery.

Propranolol is only part of a complete program of treatment for hypertension that may also include diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely if you are being treated for hypertension.

Hypertension often has no symptoms, so you may not even feel that you have high blood pressure. Continue using this medicine as directed, even if you feel well. You may need to use blood pressure medication for the rest of your life.

Store propranolol at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss a dose?
For regular (short-acting) propranolol: Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If your next dose is less than 4 hours away, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at the next regularly scheduled time.

For extended-release propranolol (Inderal LA, InnoPran XL and others): Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If your next dose is less than 8 hours away, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at the next regularly scheduled time.

Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose?
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine.

Overdose symptoms may include slow or uneven heartbeats, dizziness, weakness, or fainting.

What should I avoid while taking propranolol?
Avoid drinking alcohol. It may increase your blood levels of propranolol.
