Propranolol HCl - An Overview
Propranolol, marketed under the branded version Inderal, is a medication primarily used in the treatment of high blood pressure, migraines, essential tremor and other conditions. Through Push Health, people needing a propranolol prescription can connect with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe propranolol medication, including propranolol ER, propranolol 10 mg, propranolol 20 mg and propranolol 40 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
Propranolol - Uses and Effects
Propranolol prescription medication belongs to a class of medications known as nonselective beta-adrenergic receptor blocking agents, sometimes also referred to as beta blockers. Because of its lack of specificity, it differs from more selective beta blockers such as atenolol (Tenormin), bisoprolol (Zebeta), metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol) and nebivolol (Bystolic). Propranolol causes an antihypertensive effect (i.e. lower blood pressure) and also reduces cardiac output. Propranolol also has antimigraine and antitremor effects although the mechanism of how it causes these effects is unknown.
Propranolol - Dosage and Cost
Propranolol medication is sometimes started at a dosage of propranolol 40 mg one or more times per day, depending on the specific needs of the patient. When taken orally, propranolol is absorbed quickly but also metabolized quickly by the liver. Peak plasma concentrations of propranolol occur 1 to 4 hours after being taken orally. Protein-rich foods improve the bioavailability of propranolol. Most of the circulating propranolol in the body is bound to proteins in the plasma. Propranolol is primarily excreted in the urine and the plasma half-life is generally from 3 to 6 hours. The half-life of propranolol is often prolonged in elderly people. At many pharmacies, propranolol medication costs under forty cents per pill. Propranolol coupons may be available and the cost of propranolol pills may be covered by some insurance plans. Propranolol hydrochloride tablets appear as hexagonal-shaped scored tablets in a range of colors, depending on the dose. Propranolol tablets should be stored at 20° to 25° C in a well-closed container.
Propranolol for Anxiety
Many people wonder if propranolol can be taken for anxiety and social anxiety in particular. While rumor has it that propranolol does help people with anxiety, one study failed to find a definitive benefit. Given that some people continue to report that propranolol for anxiety does have some benefit, larger studies need to be done to look for more evidence of this association before any benefit will be accepted by the medical community.
Can I Buy Propranolol Online?
One cannot legitimately buy propranolol online (i.e. propranolol without a doctor prescription) in the United States as it requires a prescription. As such, propranolol OTC (over the counter) is not available, either. Through Push Health, people interested in getting a propranolol prescription can get connected with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe propranolol tablets, including propranolol 40 mg, propranolol 20 mg and propranolol 10 mg tablets as well as propranolol ER, when appropriate to do so.
Propranolol - Side Effects
Side effects can occur in people who are taking propranolol medication although it is typically tolerated reasonably well. Side effects include, but are not limited to, a drop in heart rate (bradycardia), low blood pressure (hypotension), lightheadedness, dizziness, and bronchospasm. Propranolol prescription tablets should be avoided by people with a hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to the medication. Propranolol should not be used by people with impaired hepatic or renal function unless instructed to do so by their medical provider. Propranolol tablets can interact with other medications as well and questions about drug-drug interactions as well as propranolol's side effects should be directed to one's medical provider and pharmacist prior to using propranolol prescription medication.
