Propranolol withdrawal

Posted , 4 users are following.

I’m withdrawing from 20mg three times a day, so far it’s been okay apart from I’m experiencing strange head feeling like a brain zap, I had this when I was coming off citalopram! I’ve been on propranolol for anxiety. anyone else had this?

    Yes!!! I was on Propranolol and stopped after weaning off for a month on 1st December. First 2 wks were fine, then I got headaches, nausia, dizzyness, upset stomach and brain zaps. The zaps were mild and went away after a few days. I mainly have nausia and headaches now. I think we have to give it time to get out of our system. I took it for anxiety 40mg once a day. Made my hair fall out and a flare up of psoriasis. I'm glad I've stopped it. Good luck
