Propranolol Beta Blockers

Propranolol is a tablet that is widely prescribed in the UK to treat a number of conditions that are related to the heart. Most commonly propranolol is used to treat symptoms of a high blood pressure, angina, heart failure, anxiety and to prevent a second heart attack after previously experiencing a heart attack.

Propranolol is classed as a beta blocker and works by reducing the workload on the heart and also controls the rate at which the heart beats. As a result of taking propranolol tablets, the stress on the heart is reduced and the rate at which the heart beats is also slowed down.

Propranolol is a drug that can be used for a number of treatments, the most common of these being; high blood pressure, angina, heart failure, heart attacks, anxiety and migraines. Propranolol is also available in a variety of strengths from 10mg, 20mg, 40mg and 80mg. Due to the severity of the conditions that propranolol beta blocker tablets are used for; this medication can only be purchased with a valid UK prescription. Upon purchasing this medication, patients are required to answer a few questions, which will help our UK based doctor determine which propranolol dosage to prescribe you with. Typically more severe cases will require a higher propranolol dosage.

Using Propranolol for Situational Anxiety

Propranolol forms effective treatment for a number of conditions that affects the heart. Propranolol is also a common medication that is used to treat the effects of situational anxiety due to its ability to control the rate at which the heart beats. A common symptom of anxiety is an increased heart rate and due to the way that propranolol reduces the heart rate, this makes it an effective treatment for anxiety.
