Does anyone know if it's okay to take propranolol (beta blocker 40mg x 3) and venlafaxine (SNRI 37.5mg x 2) together? I don't know if my doctor forgot to prescribe me propranolol on my last visit simply thinking I had some left or that im not supposed to take the two he never said anything and I don't want to have to go back so soon.

    Put them in together on Google. It should come up on one of their lists.. Or to be safer is your pharmacy open? Theyd be able to tell you a definite yes or no.

      Thanks for replying. I've tried loads of websites from google search but had no luck so I thought I'd try on this. It isn't open unfortunately I'll have to wait til Monday. Thanks smile

    Hi Bonnie,

    I know you don't want to go back in but I'd at least call the doc back and see if he/she just forgot. Maybe they can reorder it on the phone w/o having to go in again.

    Propanolol and venlafaxine do react. The propanolol will increase the affect of venlafaxine because it will alter the drugs metabolism. Make sure you are monitored by your doctor. Please talk to your doctor first before taking them together.
