Question: I took a single 5 mg dose of propranolol a week ago. Would this have left my system by now? Or does it leave side effects

Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below... Detailed Answer: Hi, The dose of propanolol you were taking was very small and since a week ago. With regards to side effects, as long as you are healthy and do not have any complain, there is nothing to worry about. What is more, you took that pill long time ago (about 1 week), so, its effect is over now. Hope this eased your worries! Wish you health and no need to take such pills anymore! p.s. if you have further concern, do not hesitate to contact me!

I took Zonegran 100 mg bid for several years very effectively as a migraine preventative. It also helped me lose 35 lbs. It melted away. I also started losing hair about that time, but never connected the problem with this med. About 1-1/2 years ago, I started exhibiting a tremor and loss of dexterity in one hand. No one was able to diagnose, and in my own experiment to find a cause, I switched meds to Inderal, to see if zonegran had anything to do with my problem. When my condition was finally diagnosed as Parkinson s, I got switched back to Zonegran, since Inderal was making me gain weight. I started losing hair alarmingly again, and finally was told Zonegran could be the culprit. I ve weaned off it again but now my tremor has worsened noticeably. So I guess my choices are possible migraines and a tremor, or no migraines, less tremor and bald. What to do??

I am taking Propranolol for high blood pressure and anxiety. I started 10mg twice a day on Monday. Today I noticed that I have like a dull ache in my chest. It came on around 5pm and has been present most of the evening. Is this a normal side effect or is it just my anxiety?

I have migraines and was suggested to use Prothiaden 50mg at night, inderal 40mg morning and evening and Naxdom 500mg SOS. I have been feeling drowsy lately during the day and having weird types of dreams - seeing different colored lights and depth perception is also altered. I was on half dose of the above drugs for 15 days and recently, about 10 days back increased dose. Please tell me if these are side effects or Normal and what should I do?
