Propranolol Hydrochloride 40 mg for weaning off Xanax

I was told that people who are addicted to Xanax can be weaned off of it with this Propranolol Hydrochloride 40 mg pill marked "40 Dan 5556". Is this a true fact? What all is Propranolol used for? ## Michael Jackson died from it. It is an anesthetic for surgeries. MJ on top of Valium and dillaudid shots he got from dr Conrad Murray. He went to jail for four years. I’ve never heard of anybody using it, for the help or getting off Xanax. It really takes 5 days if you ween w the first benzo ever made called Librium. I got off Xanax In 5 days at a detox. I couldn’t believe it w no side effects or rebound anxiety ## It's a beta 2 blocker and will help slow the heart rate down if it is beating too fast. ## RB is correct, Propranolol is a beta blocker, which is most com...

Can Propranolol Help Me Sleep

Having trouble sleeping at night and was wondering if propranolol would help as they slow your heart beat? ## No, it is not safe to try to use them to induce sleep. Propranolol can cause some drowsiness as a side effect, but it is actually most commonly used to help lower high blood pressure and improper use of it can be dangerous, due to the fact that it can lower your heart rate and blood pressure. You can learn more Propranolol details here. Thus, the first thing you need to do is get to the root of the problem. What is causing you to have trouble sleeping? Have you tried cutting out stimulants after 3pm, such as caffeine, chocolate and sugars? Do you keep a consistent bedtime and wake time? ## Propranolol can help some people sleep, particularly if their lack of sleep is due to anxi...

Pur Bloka

Can Pur-Bloka or it's generic be bought over the counter? What alternatives are there to Pur-Bloka? I'm using it once a day for mild nervousness. ## Pur-Bloka contains the active ingredient Propranolol, it is a beta blocker, which is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac related conditions. Thus, I am not sure how it is supposed to help with nervousness of any type. In the U.S. and other countries that regulate their medications, it is only available by prescription.

Pliva 467 vs P10 Propanolol

I've been taking the Pliva 467 for almost 15 years. Now they did away with the 467 and i got the P10. I start them tomorrow but I'm afraid. Are they the same? ## Hi Joyce - I understand your concerns, especially if the Pliva version (50111-467) has been working for you all this time. To answer your question, they both contain Propranolol Hydrochloride 10 mg. The P 10 version appears to be manufactured by Heritage Pharmaceuticals (NDC code 23155-110).

Mega doses of Vitamin D and high heart rate

I am having a big problem with a high heart rate since the doctor put me on mega doses of vitamin D. Has anyone had this problem? ## Was your rate shown to be severely low by actual blood tests? MedlinePlus has an article about vitamin D toxicity, though it doesn't cover all the causes and symptoms. However, it is a real problem that it becoming more and more prevalent, due to the habit many people have of thinking it is safe to take supplements in high amounts. Since it can cause high blood pressure, elevated heart rate has been known to go along with it, since your heart has to work harder. Have you actually had your heart rate checked, or does it just feel like it is racing? ## I never have low heart rate, usually too high so I have to take propranolol. I have had my thyroid rem...

I found this pill laying around my house. It is green and has N010 imprinted on one side and is scored on the other. ## I believe that Betty is correct - a round green pill with imprint N010 corresponds with Propranolol 40 mg (NDC 16714-023). This drug is classified as a Beta Blocker. Medline Plus states "Propranolol is used to treat high blood pressure, irregular heart rhythms, pheochromocytoma (tumor on a small gland near the kidneys), certain types of tremor, and hypertrophic subaortic stenosis (a heart muscle disease). It is also used to prevent angina (chest pain), migraine headaches, and to improve survival after a heart attack. Propranolol is in a class of medications called beta blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels and slowing heart rate to improve blood flow and dec...

Coming off propranolol 80mg

I've been taking propranolol 80mg once a day for over 2 years for anxiety that caused me to have severe chest pain and to feel dizzy. It definitely made me feel better but the cause of my anxiety was due to where i worked and now I have moved work to somewhere that is a big advocate of helping employers with mental health. This has greatly helped the mental side of my anxiety so now I want to stop taking them before I become too dependent on them. What I want to know is are the side effects you get from it really bad or does it depend on the person. I dont want to stop and all the feelings i used to get come rushing back. Thank you for any advice. ## It can depend on the person, but it is always best to taper such a medication, since the NIH warns that stopping it abruptly could cau...

Getting off propranolol, a safe way?

Adult male here. About 5 years ago i quit drinking. Anxiety, panic attacks, migraines and PTSD resurfaced. Went to the doctor and the waiting room triggered me. As a normal physiological response to a perceived threat, my BP rose. Now in the doctors office, they look at my BP and say "wow it's so high!" I try to explain but since it wasn't on file... got prescribed propranolol. 10mg twice a day. Would get migraine in the afternoon so this was increased to 10mg 3 times a day / every 6 hours.

What Is Pur Bloka Used For

Why is Pur bloka being used in the treatment of migraine and Anachroid cyst? ## Pur-Bloka contains the active ingredient propranolol hydrochloride, in doses of 10 or 40mg tablets. Propranolol Hydrochloride's principal effect is to reduce the response of the heart to stress and exercise and it reduces blood pressure in patients with hypertension. The indications for this drug however, have no apparent relation to Arachnoid cysts or migraine headaches. The only conclusion I can reach is that Propranolol may help with specific symptoms or your body's response to such conditions; possibly allowing your body to relax when either of these conditions could make someone restless with insomnia. Just a thought.. but I hope this helps! Have you discussed this yet with any doctor or physici...
