Can anyone explain? I started on 40 mg propanolol two days ago, for abnormal heart rhythms. The doc gave me a prescription for just one of these tabs per day. Took first one yesterday, felt great all day, abnormal rhythms gone and energy returning but woke around 5 am feeling bad, slightly sick and very tired. Then I read in the enclosed leaflet that I should be taking the 40 mg dose in four equally spaced 10mg tablets. I have contacted the doctor for another prescription to rectify this and, meanwhile, have chopped one 40mg tablet in half and swallowed 20mg. Am planning to take the other half around tea time, Best I could do for the time being.
Trouble is, I am still feeling rotten. Tired, ringing in the ears, tense but worn out, occasional dropped heart beat. Do I need more of the drug right now or is my system just catching up and getting used to this stuff? Would appreciate your thoughts. Any clues?
