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!

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I have been on Inderal for almost 20 years. Normally take it in the morning. I'm on LA 120 right now. I also have a drink in the evening. But lately for some reason I keep forgetting to take it and take it at night. I just took it like 20 minutes ago. Can I still have my drink tonight? I take it for fast heartbeat and anxiety. I just get nervous mixing the two.

My husband was diagnosed to have A-fib in 2004. He received full work-up, Echo, ECG, ultrasound, etc. They also discovered left bundle branch block. He was cardioverted and remained in sinus rhythm. Saw a cardiologist who said all was well. Go home and try to lose some weight. He is currently on Micardis and Propranolol. He recently had a sore throat and fever. Fever subsided but sore throat is still present. He has just recently experienced symptoms of A-fib; weakness, dizziness when bending over and irregular heart. BP is normal. Should he see his doctor?

I have an occasional rapid heartbeat. When I first started with it the Drs diagnosed me with Graves disease. But after 2 years or so I the Dr said that either I had gone into remission or it has gone away. I take propranolol and i was fine until about 1 month ago. I was retested for the Graves but that was normal. My Dr upped the dosage of the propranolol but I am still concerned that it is something else. The palpatations are usually at night.
