You should seek medical evaluation in-person immediately at Urgent Care or Emergency Dept if you have not yet been evaluated.

I take Inderal (propranolol) 40 mg, 3 times a day, would it be better if I take a 120 mg EXTENDED RELEASE once a day. I take it for a rapid heart rate and blood pressure. Will my pulse rate stay more even through out the day.

U may have break-thru, in which case 20mg or 40mg can supplement XR. Read more...
