I would expect a Dr. to not want a patient to come in requesting a specific drug to treat themselves. Drs. tend to want to treat their patients as they think appropriate. They have their reasons for selecting the medicines they choose, mostly based on the patient's own history and health. Maybe you know your Dr. well enough that this won't be a problem.
Really depends on the doctor you could say you read something about it and would like to give it a try unless he has something better to try. I have asked for different things but I had seen my old doctor for at least 30 years but also Propranolol is not a narcotic so really would not feel bad asking about it. But leave the door open in case the doctor would rather try something else.Best of luck to you. Hope all goes well
