I have been prescribed 40 mg propranolol 3x a day however I feel ok during the day after my morning tablet. So would twice a day be ok instead of 3? Also I was prescribed it for generalized anxiety disorder. I'm worried it will slow my heart rate down too much. Please advise

Propranolol is a beta-blocker that affect the heart and blood flow through arteries and veins. Propranolol is used to treat tremors, chest pain, high blood pressure, heart rhythm disorders, and other heart or circulatory conditions. It is also used to treat or prevent heart attack, and to reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches. You should not use propranolol if you are allergic to it, or if you have asthma, very slow heart beats that have caused you to faint; or some serious serious heart condition. Never adjust the dosage based on your subjective feeling. There are alternatives to propanalol like metropolol. Your Doctor will be the best person to readjust or taper the dosage or cahange the medicine. Talk with him. My advise would be never to bank on medicines only for your Anxiety. Practice yoga and pranayams regularly. It will definitely help you to reduce symptoms of GAD. You should also follow a healthy diet. Try to eat whole grains as they are rich in magnesium and tryptophan, an amino acid that your body converts to serotonin which is known to calm and improve your mood. Oats also increase serotonin production and are high in fiber, which helps prevent blood sugar spikes that affect mood. Foods that help regulate and lower the stress hormone cortisol include foods rich in vitamin C, like oranges, omega-3 fatty acids, and magnesium rich foods like spinach and other dark leafy greens. Indulge every once in a while in dark chocolate, which also helps lower cortisol. Avocados, eggs, milk, and meat are all packed with B vitamins that can help prevent anxiety. Some popular natural alternatives to prescribed beta blockers are Magnesium, Potassium,L-arginine, Tryptophan,Antioxidants and St. John Wort. You can also try Acupuncture treatment for anxiety. Acupuncture is particularly helpful for people who want to limit or stop drug use prescription or otherwise. Majority of patients report they sleep better and have a stronger sense of overall well-being after just a few sessions.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. As you are suffering from high blood pressure you must be taking some medicines for your problem. If you are not taking any medicines I would advise you to walk for at least 1 hour daily. Abstain from high cholesterol rich foods like red meat, eggs. Don't over-exert yourself. Your high blood pressure will make you to sweat much than normal persons, so don't forget to drink plenty of water. Try to have at least 8 hours sleep. Last but surely not the least, try to avoid any type of mental stress.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) - What Are The Symptoms?

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Cardiology

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) - What Are The Symptoms?

The coronary arteries supply the heart with oxygen-enriched blood and nutrients. If these arteries become damaged or diseased; they could cause Coronary artery disease or CAD. Plaque deposits on the walls of the arteries are the most common cause of this disease. This plaque is usually the result of high cholesterol levels. As the plaque builds up, the passage of blood flow is reduced. This reduces the amount of blood that reaches the heart. In cases of a complete blockage, CAD can even cause a heart attack. Because of its slow progression, this disease is often not diagnosed until it reaches a dangerous stage. However, it can be prevented and treated if diagnosed in time.

 

 


In the early stages of CAD, symptoms are not very noticeable. Symptoms become visible only when blood flow tCoronary Artery Diseaseo the heart reduces and the heart has to pump harder than normal. The most common symptoms experienced include:

 

 

  1. Chest Pain: This is also referred to as angina. It may feel like a tightening of the chest or pressure on the chest as though someone is pressing against it. This type of chest pain may be triggered by emotional or physical stress. It is usually relieved within a few minutes of stopping the activity. Women may experience this pain as a sharp, fleeting pain in the back, arm or neck.
  2. Breathlessness: When the heart does not receive enough blood, it has to work harder to pump blood through the body. This may be translated to breathlessness of shortness of breath when performing any type of physical activity. It can also cause extreme fatigue.
  3. Heart Attack: A heart attack is the most severe symptom of coronary artery disease. This is caused by the complete blockage of a coronary artery. A heart attack can occur without any symptoms or be preceded by slight symptoms. The signs of an impending heart attack include pain in the chest and shoulder, shortness of breath and extreme sweating. The chest pain may also travel to the lower jaw. These symptoms are more pronounced in men as compared to women. Women have a higher tendency of experiencing atypical signs such as extreme fatigue.

Other symptoms that might indicate coronary artery disease are dizziness, nausea and an irregular heartbeat. The good news is that this disease can be prevented. Staying physically active, maintaining a healthy weight, reducing stress and eating a low fat and low salt diet can help reduce the risk of CAD.  In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
