I am an almost 54 year old female and am taking propranolol extended release 80 mg for mitral valve stenosis. I have been taking only one capsule @ morning. My dr. actually prescribed two a day but I've only been taking one because of the side effects and trying to avoid the tiredness it causes. However, I'm thinking of starting the two a day once more to help me calm down at bedtime. Any suggestions or help from any of you would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

loves2walk: Hi- I also take Propanolol twice a day. I take 1 in the a.m. and the other I take prior to going to bed, maybe 11/12:00. I like to take them at least 14 or so hrs. apart. I take them for my heart rate as without them my bpm is like 160! They have helped tremendously. You said that you are thinking of starting the 2 a day as opposed to the 1 that you are taking? Good idea especially if you find that it helps to calms you down not to mention your Dr. had prescribed 2/day. Best of luck to you-
