Propranolol (inderal) useful for performance anxiety?

Propranolol (inderal) useful for performance anxiety?

I don't do this.: Some drs use propanolol (inderal). I do not. This med is cognitively suppressive-esp if used episodically-so it can backfire. My experience is that there are better meds& methods.

Plus, the patient needs to be acclimated well in advance. ...Read more

Can I take. Inderal (propranolol) if I have a history of asthma?

Can I take. Inderal (propranolol) if I have a history of asthma?

Possibly: Asthma that is active with airway bronchospasm makes a non selective beta blocker like Inderal (propranolol) problematic, because beta 2 receptor sites line the bronchial airways (wheezing might get worse). If beta blocker needed in that case would use a beta 1 specific agent (metoprolol). That said, history of asthma with no active wheezing probably not a problem for inderal (propranolol). ...Read more

I'm on inderal (propranolol) 40mg twice a day for anxiety and hyperventilation is this a good drug for such use at this dose?

Many folks feel well on just 10 or 20 mg before a stressful event (but that would be 40-80 mg daily if taken twice a day, so it's not unreasonable.) Another option is Buspirone. ...Read more
