propranolol 10 mg
can i break the tablet in half ## I have been taking 10 mg of propranolol twice a day. My heartrate was around 52-70 and I was feeling like I had no energy most of the time. I have been breaking the tablets in half and I am taking a half a tablet twice a day but at times my heartrate is around 100-110 and I am feeling anxious. Should i be concerned? ## I certainly hope Jen found an answer to her question, or consulted her doctor. As to her heart rate issues, the 52 to 70 really isn't a concern, that's fairly close to normal, the normal resting rate for an adult is 60 to 100, so the 52 isn't severely low and the 70 is right in the proper range. ….some well trained athletes may have a heart rate of only 40 or so, at rest, because they are in top shape and the...

Moving to Minneapolis MN area and need a doctor
I am moving from FL to MN in a couple of weeks and looking for a doctor who will continue my medications for back pain, high blood pressure, stomach issues. ## Hello, Jenifer! How are you? Depending on what you take for back pain, you may need to see a pain management specialist now for that, since GPs can no longer prescribe long-term use narcotics. Can anyone suggest a good PCP in the area?

Reduce 15 Mg
A frien od mine gave som slimming pills called Reduce 15 mg that he bought in Thailand. They are not allowed in the country where I live, so I can't consult my doctor. I'm healthy but I have suffered from stress due to too much work, and have been medicated for that a couple of times, though not currently. I'm not fat, but I have gained 20 kg due to stress. Do you know which secondary efects these pills could have or if I should take them at all? ## From what I can find, Reduce contains the active ingredient Subutramine, which has been pulled from the market in many countries, due to the severe dangers associated with it. It can cause cardiac related dangers, such as: accelerate heart rate, trouble breathing, elevated pulse and elevated blood pressure. There have been some i...
