Dan; Both of these medications are in the same class of drugs. But Propranolol main use is blood pressure and then later they found it works well for nerves in low dose or Migraine prevention. Anyway as far as the Blood pressure goes check it again and if it is still that high call your doctor it could be something as easy as dose adjustments. So don't worry they well get it under control also it could be your system adjusting to the change in Medication. These are both in the beta blocker class of medications and a good place to start. anyway please give your doctor a call and see what he or she says about it. Best of luck Chuck1957
