Weaning off propranolol after 11 days.

Posted , 3 users are following.

Been having horrible anxiety, doc prescribed propranolol. 60mg extended release tabs. Felt like complete carp, actually felt worse. Doc gave me the short release tabs. 20mg with instructions to take 20mg 2x a day for three days then a half tab once a day for three days. Seemed like a helluva drop so I called pharmacist. New weaning schedule 40mg for 2 days, 30 mg for 2 days, 20mg for 2 days and 10 mg for 2 days then I will be free of this horrible stuff. Does this sound like I was weaned right? Some anxiety so I'm not sure. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I was on 40mg 3x per day for about 4months and after a while I just stopped. Cold turkey. I had two days of a sore head and then I was ok. But everyone is different and less or more sensitive to meds.

    Good luck

      The doctor didn't tell me to come off them I was punt on them for the foreseeable future. I just didn't want to be taking them anymore so I stopped x
