In brief: Try another drug

Propranolol is used to treat hypertension.
It will generally lower your heart rate. A side effect, however, is bronchospasm (asthma) which could explain your shortness of breath. Your propanolol dose is not sufficient to lower your blood pressure or heart rate, but may be causing side effects so it shouldn't be increased. The best way to sort this out might be to try another antihypertensive.
