Hypertension can cause prolonged strain on the heart and circulatory system, leading to impaired function. Although hypertension is incurable, it can be controlled with medication, lifestyle changes and diet. One medication that can help keep blood pressure under control is Propranolol. It is widely known throughout the world and has helped many people in United Kingdom to feel full of life.

What Propranolol Is And How It Works

Propranolol is because it blocks the action of certain chemicals in the body called beta-adrenoceptors. These receptors are associated with effects on the heart and blood vessels, so blocking their action causes a reduction in heart rate, dilation of blood vessels and a decrease in blood pressure.

Indications For Use

The drug is used to treat various conditions such as arrhythmias, high blood pressure, angina pectoris, IBS, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, myocardiodystrophy, neurocirculatory dystonia, thyrotoxicosis, liver cirrhosis, withdrawal syndrome, migraine, work-induced weakness, anxiety disorders, tremor and hyperthyroidism.

Contraindications To Use

Propranolol has well-defined contraindications where its use may be unsafe or even dangerous. These include:

  • asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD);
  • low blood pressure;
  • bradycardia (reduced heart rate below 60 beats per minute) and heart failure;
  • poor peripheral circulation;
  • allergy to Propranolol or other beta-adrenoblockers or to any of the excipients.
  • The use of the medicinal product in pregnant women or during lactation is not recommended unless the expected benefits greatly outweigh the probable risks.
  • Propranolol should not be used with certain other medicines such as MAO inhibitors, antidepressants, anticoagulants and others.
  • If you have any of these conditions, you should tell your doctor so that he/she can decide how safe it is for you to use Propranolol.

Side effects

Like any other medicine, Propranolol may have side effects such as headache, tiredness, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, constipation, depression, insomnia, bronchospasm, low blood sugar in diabetics, allergic reactions such as swelling, itching, hives and others. If you experience any of the serious side effects (even if not listed above), consult your doctor.
