First time poster here. Not sure where else to ask this so I figure i'd give this place a try.
For multiple reasons which i'd rather not explain at this point, i have been on a steady dose of 10mg propranolol, twice a day for 10 years now. It works well and helps me get through the day, but having the need to take it twice a day is becoming quite annoying, so i'm trying to find something like this drug that i can take once a day. My doctor (who is a replacement from my original doctor who put me on the drug) does not seem very keen to help with this. Basically i was offered a 50mg Atenolol prescription which i turned away considering the strong dose. I don't want to take such a dose when 10mg twice a day works fine for me of propranolol. I don't want to over dose this medicine into my body when it does not require it, but i cannot find anything else that would be a good equivalent.
DOes anyone know what would be a similar replacement that i could potentially try and switch over to? Another beta blocker that is close (wouldn't mind if its a little higher) to 10mg propranolol, but one that i could take only once a day.
