Propanolol Troubles

Posted , 3 users are following.

So a couple of months ago I had a blip which resulted in me doubling my Paroxetine tablets back to 20mg and also was put onto Propanolol beta blockers 2x 40mg a day.

I never wanted to be back on the beta blockers after being on them a couple of years ago.

Anyway I managed to come down to one beta blocker and last Friday saw my GP again and she said to stop taking them altogether.

I double checked at the time I'd heard right as I thought u had to wean gently.

So it's been two days since i stopped and today I felt really shaky and zoned out.

The shakes were horrible. Over time it has passed though and it didn't provoke me to have a full blown panic attack which is great.

Has anyone else ever come off Propanolol and just done it by stopping a 40mg dose? Just feels like a high dose to just stop??

    Yes and I felt the same way so I took it upon myself to do it gradually. I took my regular dose then cut it down by 10 mg every two days. Then I took 10 mgs for a few days then stopped altogether. It worked for me. I hope it works for you.

    Dependent on your dose you should be ok. Your GP will be watching your back

    Keep a hold
