Propranolol is a beta blocker that has been proven effective in treating anxiety disorders. It can help with social anxiety and performance anxiety issues related to public speaking or performing arts activities like singing or dancing. Propranolol relieves physical effects and signs of anxiety by slowing a racing heartbeat and reducing sweating and trembling. Propranolol also treats high blood pressure (hypertension) and tremor disorders, and it is used to prevent angina and migraines.
Initial consultation costs $65 and $55 per month for ongoing medication management.
What is propranolol?
Propranolol, also known as Inderal, is a beta blocker that has been used to treat medical conditions like high blood pressure and tremors. In recent years, propranolol has also gained popularity as an anti-anxiety drug, thanks to its ability to decrease stress and anxiety while keeping other cognitive functions intact. It’s commonly prescribed in conjunction with psychotherapy or counseling, though it can be taken on its own as well, either daily or just before stressful situations occur.
How does propranolol work?
Propranolol is a drug that inhibits the effects of the stress hormone noradrenaline, combating physical symptoms of anxiety. Propranolol also works by slowing your heart rate and relaxing blood vessels. This decreases blood pressure, lowers your heart rate, and allows your body to respond better in stressful situations.
What are the side effects of hydroxyzine?
Side effects of propranolol are generally rare and mild, but if you experience them, talk to your provider. Side effects most commonly associated with use of propranolol include dizziness, fatigue, diarrhea, cold hands, and cold feet.
How do I take propranolol?
Propranolol may be taken with or without food. Take propranolol as directed by your medical provider. You may need to adjust your dosage depending on your current level of anxiety, as well as how you respond to treatment.
Can I take propranolol with other medications?
If you are currently taking any other medications, including over-the-counter medicines, supplements and herbal remedies, it’s best to discuss their use with your healthcare provider before starting a new medication. While there are many medications that may be safely taken in conjunction with propranolol, some may interact with propranolol including certain antidepressants, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen.
Are there any risks when taking propranolol?
Like all medications, there are some risks and side effects to consider when taking propranolol. Propranolol can interact with other drugs you’re taking, so your provider should closely monitor your situation and make changes as needed. Also, be aware that there are certain groups of people who shouldn’t take propranolol. For example, pregnant women shouldn’t take it without a provider's recommendation or consultation. Discuss any concerns you have with your provider prior to taking any medication.
How quickly does propranolol work?
Propranolol can help reduce physical symptoms of anxiety such as sweating and tension in as little as 30 minutes. For some people, it may take 2-3 hours to feel the effects of propranolol. If you are using propranolol to help with anxiety before stressful events, it’s a good idea to test it out so that you know how quickly propranolol will work for you. Discuss with your provider about what will work best for you.
