After taking a 20mg propranolol 7 o'clock this morning i checked my bp an it was 108over82 an heart rate was 84 is this alright i also have extreme anxiety an thinking about going to the er so any comments need asap
Whitney; With us, it is really hard to get a good blood pressure reading because of the anxiety. So I would not worry about that part at all those readings are not bad anyway. The propranolol has worked wonders for me but they changed me from the 20mg tablets to the 80mg Timed release capsules and I have much less anxiety that I can't control by breathing deep and slow along with my regular medications and I started this because of migraine headaches and found it to really work well for my anxiety. But also you can't continue to worry too much about your blood pressure when they use it for blood pressure it is normally in much higher of a dose.Let your doctor worry about your blood pressure. This well only increases your anxiety when we over think these things. good luck to you.
Hi Whitney. I don't why propranolol was prescribed in your case, but your three numbers are excellent. Have you talked to your doctor about your extreme anxiety? Let me/us know how you are doing. Please.
