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 their heart works very efficiently.

The 110 is a little high if you're resting, but not severely dangerous and may have been caused by cutting the dosage of the tablet, caffeine, stress or any one of a number of other things.

But, someone should always contact their doctor to discuss such concerns and not try to adjust their medications on their own.

There are also medical conditions where the information I've listed about the heart rate doesn't apply, so they would need to talk to their doctor and not go by what Ive listed.

Your doctor can tell you what heart rates you should be concerned about and when to seek medical attention.

The lack of energy can be a side effect of these types of medications and will usually wear off after your body gets used to it, which is generally around 4 to 6 weeks of use. If it doesn't then your doctor should be consulted as it may not be the right medication for you to take.

Another reason you may be feeling fatigued is if it actually had your blood pressure going a bit too low, so you should always check regularly, when taking these types of medications.

And any tablet that isn't time released, or doesn't specifically say not to break, cut, crush or chew can be cut, if necessary. But, once again, I caution not to try to adjust the dosage on your own. Please follow your doctors instructions.

Are there any questions or comments?

I take topirimate daily for migraine prevention. Is propranolol safe to take with this for anxiety?

Yes you can break Inderal, But be careful by reading below!
I'm taking inderal from 8 months! at start 20mg / day. (10mg morning + 10mg evening)
One important thing for all of you, do not stop talking inderal or propanolol suddenly!
you may feel worse effects like Chest pain, Sudden raise in blood pressure, Irregular heart beat. or heart problem!
I myself stop a morning time inderal 10 mg, & felt sudden raise in blood pressure till again talking inderal.
then i reduce it by breaking it as 10mg/ day, without any problem
Then I reduced it again after 2 weeks as 5mg/ day without any problem
Before two days I decided to skip one day does, but that was wrong decision, after end of the day! My blood pressure was normal 116/ 80 but then within 5 second it raise to hypertension (i didn't monitor but i felt it like above 180/100) sudden Irregular heart beat. suddenly my condition became worse.
Then I take Inderal 5mg quikly! then my blood pressure went down to normal 129 / 80
Now I have to reduce it as 2.5mg
So keep in mind. Do not Stop Taking Inderal Or Propanolol suddenly.
Just Reduce the amount of medicine gradually (20mg>10mg>5mg so on..) after 2 week
Remember me in your Prayers!

It's taken me 11 months to get off propranalol . I did it by cutting down very gradually. What made my mind up was that my hair was thinning and I discovered that it was a side effect.
