Beta blockers: in asthma patients aren't advisable,some beta blockers are selective and don't affect lung function, however propranolol isn't, the dose you are on is bit large, also the drug lingers in your system longer than others, several days after you stop using it. Given your condition, you need to be seen by a neurologist for alternative management of your migraine that won't affect your adthma, goodluck
