Hello I am taking atarax 50 mg for insomnia, but from 2 days my heart rate reaches 110 bpm. Is it Secure? What should I do? Should I take inderal (propranolol)?

Stop it. there is a recent warning issued re. cardiovascular problem associated with Atarax which tends to spend up the heart rate due to its anti-cholinergic activities. Avoid taking Atarax and probably also Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as a sleeping aid. You shouldn't take another medication to counteract the side effect from another. Avoidance is the key.

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.

Worth trying? Can't. If u r bothered by having to take Inderal (propranolol) 3x/day (perhaps ur working, or forgetting to carry doses w/ you), then it's worthwhile asking ur doc if he can prescribe the extended release (XR) form. While the math works 4 most ppl (40 mg x 3/day = 120 mg XR), some ppl require more & some require less. But 120 mg is a gd starting amt. U may have break-thru, in which case 20mg or 40mg can supplement XR. Read more...

Get evaluated ASAP. Without much to go on (e.g. early family history of heart problems, history of clotting disorder, etc.) it is vey difficult to pass this off as anxiety. You should seek medical evaluation in-person immediately at Urgent Care or Emergency Dept if you have not yet been evaluated. Even though your young age is protective, you can still be at risk for serious conditions related to chest pain. Read more...
