Brief Answer: No problem Detailed Answer: Hi friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic There is unlikely to be any significant effect on your pressure Nor any problem with the other medication The dose Propranolol (Betacap) has a wide range – 20 to 320 mg! - you are having a minimal dose... Good luck Take care Wishing all well God bless

allrite thnx doctor.but i had asked 5mg sibelium + 10mg betacap 10mg sibelium +10mg betacap, which of these is a better combo and why? these medications i was taking coz of the migraine, but why do i feel lethargic and lack of body and mind activeness through the day .i feel heavy of my body and lack of focussing , dizzi al d day it ok to have such a feeling. and i take it that thyroid medication will not interfere with either betacap.

Brief Answer: Doses need to be tailored to individual Detailed Answer: Hi Both the medicines, especially, sibelium can cause lethargy and 'lack of activeness' / Poorly treated thyroid (hypothyroidism) is also likely for this. Thyroid medication will not interfere with betacap 10 mg of sibelium and 10 mg or more of betacap is better Adult dose of sibelium is 10 mg / you can restrict to 5 mg only - because of the side effects. Betacap is subjected to first-pass metabolism in liver and hence a larger dose is beneficial Regards

Brief Answer: You are right - continue Detailed Answer: Hi The medicines are for prevention (prophylaxis) / they have to be continued for several months; at times for years, until symptom-free for long… Give reasonable time – say about a month / usually, the side effects wear off / If you could not tolerate the side effects, consult your neurologist and attempt to change the regime Coffee in moderation is good for fatigue and headache too Regards
