I have abruptly quitted taking propranolol. now I have swift heart beats when I go to bed. should I restart using it again on my own?
Did the dr stop it like? You're bound to have rapid pulse when its stopped if that is why you're taking it. Talk to your dr.
Why would you stop the medication because the number of tablets has been increased? You have to taper off this medication slowly under Drs supervision and if he just increased your dose, he doesnt want you off the medication. Stopping abruptly can lead to rebound effects like rapid and pounding heart rate, headaches, chest pains and increased blood pressure. You could have a stroke! Please talk to your Dr about concerns, dont just stop the medication.
