Is it bad to be on propranolol if I have food allergies? I've read that I can't have epinephrine or epipen if I have anaphylactic reaction??

Can use but risks: Non-Selective B Blockers such as propanolol can blunt the good effects of epinephrine so that more epinephrine may be needed to achieve a good response. The propanolol can make use of EpiPen more prone to increase your blood pressure. . If you take propanolol for migraine or thyroid, you will likely be ok with EpiPen, but may need more. If it is for cardiac issues, you should be more careful.
