What is Propranolol?
Propranolol is a medication used for the treatment of hypertension, angina and tremors. It’s a beta-blocker that helps the blood flow through veins and arteries to improve the circulation and heart. It is often prescribed to help treat heart rhythm disorders and can be prescribed as a preventative measure against heart attack. It can also be used to minimise the frequency and severity of migraines, to help control thyroid or adrenal gland tumours, and is sometimes used as a treatment for performance anxiety. The tablet reduces the workload of your heart so it can beat more regularly without as much effort.
Propranolol is available in four forms – oral tablet, extended-release oral capsule, oral liquid solution and injectable. It is sometimes referred to by brand names including Inderal, Hemangeol and InnoPran XL.
