Brief Answer:
Yes unless you have contraindicated condition

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
welcome and thanks for your query.
Propranolol is a beta blocker and can block the sympathetic overdrive that can occur with anxiety associated with flying and can calm you. However it should be avoided if you have asthma or diabetes.
Dramamine produces sedation and drowsiness in some people. If that is not an issue,it can be taken to prevent nausea and vomiting.
Do get back to me if you have further queries.
