In brief: Had anaphylaxis?

If you have suffered anaphylaxis, first see an allergist and have him/her discuss with your cardiologist changing propranolol to another anti-arrhythmic drug.
There are medications that will be effective for anaphylaxis in patients who are on propranolol, If you haven't suffered from anaphylaxis and have no life-threatening allergies, stop worrying.
