 3  Headache Loss of appetite, frequent urination, increased thirst, dry mouth, sleepiness but not an issue if taken at bedtime. does not work as good as topomax but the side effects are more tolerable. This medicine does take a while to get into your system before you notice any difference. Took 4 weeks before any noticeable difference, but worth the wait. F 30 3 months
 2  Migraine/daily headache Was prescribed Inderal for chronic migraine and daily, pounding h/a. Noticed pounding slightly better, not as good as Topamax but side effects of that drug were unmanageable. Side effects of this med: horrid, vivid nightmares, frequent urination, heart palps, low BP, hot, red facial rash, insomnia, still had a migraine & needed maxalt I don't recommend, as I don't notice a marked difference in my h/a and will not be continuing. Back to the never ending drawing board.... F 50 7 days

 4  hypertension and anxiety Slightly sleepy at first For me, this medicine has been a godsend. I had moderate hypertension despite lifestyle changes and lifelong anxiety problems. This seems to kills 2 birds with one stone. I'm very satisfied and wish I'd been put on it sooner. F 36 30 days

 3  Adrenal fatigue Nocturnal seizures, trouble sleeping, involuntary muscle spasms, fatigue, dizzy, heart palpitations My first night of taking the medication I had a full tonic clonic seizure. As far as I am aware I have never had a seizure before. My partner has worked with people with epilepsy for many years and told me the morning after what had happened. I remained as directed on the tablets for a further week. Seizures every night until I stopped taking the medication. F 32 14 days

 5  migraines I haven't experienced any side effects with this medication. This medication has given me my life back! I was having migraine headaches two -three times weekly. Since I have started this medication, I have been migraine free! I enjoy life again! Thank you inderal! F 38 2 months

 3  Headaches Urinary retention. But because I am on Anti Seizure Meds too.I can only say this is the only thing that is notable. F 52 6 months

 3  heart beat racing anxiety It worked for regulating and blocking my heart racing, but caused major ringing in ears, heart palpitation, night sweats, and huge weight gain. I ate two average meals like normal, but yet whopped on nearly 2 stone. Be careful not to suddenly stop these tablets it's very dangerous I went dangerously tachycardic, even with a g.P's titration plan, can cause nasty withdrawal side affects, but it only lady's a few weeks. Do not stop it your self. F 39 1 years
 2  Migraines Don't take it! On day 1, I had heart publications, & throughout the other days I felt light headed and dizzy. This was nothing though compared the nightmares. They are so vivid & real. All relating to my death. When I wake up, I still feel it happening. I am currently awake having not slept at 4am because I am scared to go back to sleep. Don't take it!! F 23 3 days
 2  attempt at managing anxiety Urinary retention, weakness The doctor was reluctant to prescribe this, but I was desperate for something to help with my severe crippling anxiety. But he was right, it wasn't for me, and it only gave about an hour of relief in the 4-hour duration of it's effect. Still, not worth it for me, since I was so painfully bloated in that time from drinking water, but not having to pee. This is better for those with high blood pressure. Mine was too low at the time, which was the main reason the doctor didn't want me on it. My pulse and heart rate were okay, though, so I was able to convince him. I only took that one pill, and then eventually threw the rest away. F 42 1 times

 3  Migraines & Cluster Headaches Severe brain fog to the point I could hardly string coherent thoughts together or function in my job. Dizziness. Loss of short term memory.Depression. Lack of motivation to do anything. Inability to experience joy or pleasure. Totally keeps my migraines away but after just two days of stopping Inderal the migraines are back with a vengeance. Now I have a choice between being migraine free and living with the side effects or to stop taking the drug and have the constant headaches back. I also wonder how long it will take after stopping the medication for the side effects to stop. F 49 1 years

 5  Migraine No side effects My migrain started after six months, when I started viewing TV from bed in the revese way. Dr. suggested to view TV from bed by putting TV 6-7 feets height, so that it does not effect neck and need to view in the normal sleeping posture. I will get migrain whenever there is strain on the neck. Once effected by migrain I need to take Inderal 10 (morning at 7 am) + Dolobak twice a day after break fast and dinner. This helping me alot in getting out the sever pain and head ache and could not concentrate on any thing and lot of disturbance in head (not able to thinking). Since last 7 years using Inderal whenever i attached by migrain and this tablet helping me alot. M 40 5 days

 4  PVC's/PAC's/GAD Relaxation, mild fatigue. I've been on Inderal for 3 months and so far everything has been great. I started off with 10mg 1x per day but was having very strange side effects (IE: Foggy head, panic, dizziness, feeling faint) and I lowered my dosage to 5mg 1 x per day. This has helped my PAC's/PVC's tremendously. The only thing I dislike about this medicine is the half life. I feel it only works for maybe 5 hours before the effects disappear. Wish they made a 5 mg in the extended release version. F 28 3 months

 5  Migraines Have not had any side affects since starting Inderal! Was suffering from daily severe migraines that started several years after a head trauma. Neurology tried me on Inderal and have only had a handful of mild to moderate migraines since! Most of those were due to having forgotten to take my med or waited too late. And I am also an asthmatic patient. It has not affected asthma at all! Its my miracle pill! F 34 7 years

 5  migraines Lowered blood pressure. Went from 10 migraines a month to 4-6. So far it SEEMS to be a miracle drug, but have had brief periods of fewer migraines with past medications and ended up deciding that the reduction in the number of migraines was in fact, a fluke. This could be the same thing, but so far I feel great. F 60 33 days

 1  Essential Tremor The first side effect I noticed occurred within the first week. I had sleep terrors and hallucinations at night, so bad that I let out blood curdling screams that scared my family to death. This occurred intermittantly throughout the entire time I took the medicine. The second side effect I had was a feeling of heaviness. And that makes sense: I gained 30 pounded within the first few months!! No matter how healthy I ate, I continued to gain weight. The third, rather strange side effect was that my blood pressure went up 30 points! I actually have always had low normal blood pressure (108/70 generally). My blood pressure jumped so high I couldn't believe it. The final side effect I had was extreme bloating and distension in my abdomen. I actually had very little positive effect from the medicine. My essential tremor had begun to affect my speaking voice in addition to having a jerk in my left arm and hand, and shaky right hand and arms. Once I began to take hte medicine, the only thing I felt some relief with was in my speaking voice. My hands continued to shake and my left arm continued to jerk. My blood pressure jumped so much and I have gained so much weight, I have carefully weaned myself off. My doctor never warned me of any of the side effects and in my opinion, the pros vs cons convinces me... it is not worth it. My blood pressure has already gone back to normal, my voice is still pretty good but my weight really concerns me for the possibility of heart problems. F 60 360 days

 4  Anxiety, Panic Attacks, OCD Foggy and slower thinking, memory slower, a little dizzy and more tired, slower heart rate, perhaps a little harder to breathe, loose stool (some diarriah). Caused slight tremor in my eyelids about 2 hours after taking at higher dosages. Really helped stop my anxiety and panic attacks. So much so that I was losing motivation at higher dosages. This medicine is best taken for anxiety at a very low dosage, perhaps only 5 MG twice daily, then more as needed before a speech or performance. M 44 6 months

 4  anxiety/ panic attacks Tiredness, lower heartrate (20 bpm lower), and lowered blood pressure Takes away all physical manifestations of anxiety. No more hyperventillation, shaking or pounding heart. Doesn't help the anxious thoughts but not having the physical sensations is one less thing to 'worry' about. F 33 5 days

 1  chronic migriane Weight gain, water retention, feeling of heaviness, muscle weakness, nightmares, severe depression, agitation, antisocial, moody....but it did stop the migraines. F 39 2 months

 1  Headaches This medicine is evil. It caused me to go into a deep depression so bad that I almost lost my marriage and my life. My wife kept telling the doctor over months that I was getting more depressed and he told me to think happy thoughts. Finally she got me to another doctor that changed my meds. Now I am two months off of inderal and I still have to take Prozac to try to balance out my head. The doctor said that it may take as long as I was on the medicine to get me back to normal. It made my mind grab onto hurtful things from the past and made them feel as though it had just happened. The doctor said that it created a post traumatic stress disorder. Luckily my wife held on to me and forced the issue to get me the help I needed because I was completely done living. I have never had depression so I didn't realize that there was anything wrong with me. Thank god my wife did. Do not take this Medicine or if you do please have someone watch you for signs of depression. M 45 7 months

 2  Anxiety/Hyperthyroidism Diarrhea, dizziness, disorientation The second day I took this drug I woke up, took it in the morning on an empty stomach, and about 30 minutes later while sitting at my computer had explosive diarrhea without any warning and soiled myself. This has NEVER happened to me before. This drug may be great for some people, but for others the side-effects will probably outweigh the benefits. M 35 2 days
20MG 2X D

 4  anxiety, panic attacks, headaches Dizziness upon standing only for the first day. Nightmares, vivid and disturbing dreams. This medicine immediately stopped my headaches. I have not been tired on this medicine. It has helped my anxiety, but not like I want it to so eventually I will increase my dose. I am no longer out of breath from being nervous. My heart doesn't feel like it's going to beat right out of my chest when I get nervous. Overall, I'm completely satisfied! The only reason I rated it a 4 instead of a 5 is because of the nightmares and the fact that I am not at the optimal dose I should be. F 20 1 months

 1  Migraine Great with preventing migraine, but side effects made it not worth it for me. Same eating habit and diet but gained 15 lbs in three months. I guess metabolism halted because of low HR (60's). Weaned off over two months and slowly started exercise again and avoiding my migraine trigger at all cause. F 42 6 months

 3  Migraine I had chronic migraines at least once a month, one week into taking the tablet I had another migraine, I was not satisfied. I am finding it extremely difficult to sleep at night and my dreams are exhausting! My blood pressure was low to start with (110) when I took the tablet it went down to 70. I am quite dizzy and light headed and tired. (I am taking 10MG 3 times a day, 50 would have been to high for me, original plan was 80MG until tested.) I am expirencing personality change and I am very angry and anti everything at the moment. I have not been taking the drug long enough to know if it has stopped my migraines but so far the side effects are overwhelming. F 18 4 weeks

 2  Anxiety/stress Took prior for 15 yrs with only hand spasms as a side effect.stopped taking for 6 months,restarted with different problems,depersonalisation,lack of interest,very low mood,tinnitus,no energy!

 2  Tachycardia My heart rate was initially never below 120bpm on propanolol it is 70bpm, however I have difficulty in sleeping now I don't sleep until 5am and even then I only get three hours, I feel like I'm running on empty and feel worse than I did with out it F 19 3 weeks

 5  physical anxiety made me slightly tires this stuff works good for physical anxiety like getting shaky when nervous and heart pounding. it calms your body down but does nothing for your mind. thats what xanax is for. M 20 1 years

 1  Anxiety Tiredness, shortness of breath I think this drug is giving me asthma. A lot of times I have to take a big gasp of breath. It also isn't really helping my anxiety any and makes me so tired I can't take my lunchtime walk. I think I will be sticking to Valium. F 48 6 months
20 3X D
 5  Essential Tremor No really bad side effects. Mostly the worse thing it does is makes it difficult to sleep at night for some reason. Works really good. I have essential tremor, really bad. It's so bad you would have to actually see it to believe it. I have it as bad as you would see on a very elderly person, but I am not that old. Both Hands and Head and upper body. M 57 30 days

 1  migraines, high blood pressure exhaustion, weight gain 30 lbs, sore throats, zero libido, extreme apathy and lack of interest in life, depression, aches and pains, swelling of extremities, inability to stay asleep, EXHAUSTION! I have never been overweight in my life until taking this drug and have never been so tired and generally feeling lousy. However, I didn't begin to blame the drug until recently and uncovered websites such as this with descriptions of these side effects. I just thought I was getting older. It did lessen the frequency of headaches, no question. However, if this weight gain and feeling lousy are due to the drug, there is no question that it is not worth it. I have recently started weaning off and will see how I feel. I'm hoping that I will begin feeling better, but am so angry that I have felt so miserable for so long, and no doctor ever warned me about these possible side effects, or suggested this drug might be the cause.

 4  Anxiety, stage fear feeling tired in the morning. I excercise every day for 1 1/2 hours but was feeling sleepy.. The heart rate came down to 45BPM. This was scary. I was taking 20MG twice initially then reducded to 10MG twice a day. With this dosage HR is 60 to 65 anf feel less fatigue.. With time wish to reduce the dosage and take only when i have the panic attacks Very good drug as it has helped in my Work, else my panic would have kept me in Bed. Along with the drug you need to 1) Excercise every day for atleast 60 minutes 2) Avoid Caffine and other junk food. 3) take at the same time and plan on the time. The most stressed time for me is in the afternoon 2Pm to 5PM at work so i am taking the pills in the afternoon and night. This works out well. M 35 5 years

 1  migraine the side effects were Peyronie's disease, i took this drug for a couple of days, at first it would cause strong erections then one day i felt a lot of pain in the testicles and then penis, then the problem begun. first i wasn't aware that the drug could cause the problem and neither the doctor did not warn of such effects. The drug was prescribed by a neurologist, who treated me for migraine pains. from what i read in the internet the side effect is irreversible or may be too costly, and and the side effect seem not to be treatable! how do i deal with this problem? is there any hope for persons suffering from this disease? M 36 7 days

 4  Essential Tremors Light headed, extreme cold and heat intolerance, some weight gain, fatigue If I stand too fast I get a little light headed. I fatigue easily and sometimes short of breath. However trade off is worth it not to tremor so badly. It keeps them to a minimum so that I am able to work. Weight gain was a concern because of feeling tired a lot you don't get the activity level. I do have to manage my weight because of this. I try to watch what & how much I eat especially when I notice any weight gain. It can creep up on you fast. The most I've ever gained though was 10 lbs. F 43 19 years

 5  Migraine, stage fright Heart palpitations, occassional tiredness. Perhaps slight melancoly, but who knows if that is drug induced or just state of affairs. Gave me the posibility to have an exciting work life, including having to talk in public. Without inderal, no way. F 40 2 years
80 1X D
 5  Essential tremor Heavy weight gain. I gained 50 lbs in 5 years without changing the way I eat or the way I exercise. This includes a dramatic gain of 16 lbs in 16 days. I still wonder how this was possible. The positive effects are extraordinary. Tremors reduced by 90%. Before taking Inderal, I was unable to use my left hand to hold a glass or a cup of coffee. Now, since I take Inderal, I regained the use of my left hand, and my right hand is rock solid. However, the price to pay is this serious weight gain. M 44 5 years

 1  pounding heart none when I first started it, as I increased dose all hell broke loose! Was on only one 10 mg per day. Then about a few months in had to go up to 4- 10mg a day. So only 40 mg. At 40 mg. I started getting weird vibrations in my head. Not hearing, feeling them. Like someone took a belt sander and hit on for a second. They would come and go , but all day long and very scary. I then thought what did I do different 7 weeks ago when they started. I realized it was when I upped this med. I then decreased it to 2 a day. Vibrations were lessened. Today is the first day I have take 0 of this stuff and I have only gotten one little vibration. No where near what I had before. I will not go on it again. If anyone has this let me know!!! I hope it gets outta my system soon! F 54 4 months

 5  migraine No bad side effects so far When I initially feel a migraine coming on, I immediately take 80 mg inderal and 20 mg valium. END OF STORY. Within 20 to 25 minutes all aura symptoms disappear and NO HEADACHE. Amazing, it works every time, but just the inderal alone or the valium alone will not do it. I have to take both and it took me about 20 years to figure this out. M 45 6 years

 2  hypertension, migraines Worked good for Hypertension for 9 years--did nothing for migraines though. At the 10th year I gained 20 pounds all of the sudden and it didnt control my BP anymore Im a nurse. Here's what can happen--as you get older sometimes the med will turn on you. Your body basically rejects it. I switched to Ateninol and lost 20 pounds in a month and half. Astonishing. Dont be afraid to switch drugs. I have seen patients basically become drooling idiots when a drug turns on them--switch until you find the right med. M 47 10 years

 3  migraines It's been great getting rid of my headaches..but, i have no desire to do anything physical. I give out so easy and I've gained 10 pounds already. I feel its' due to the lack of excercise. but, i feel so tired all the time since i've been on this medication M 43 6 months

 4  Migraines I think it's increasing my insomnia. Other than that, ZERO effects for me. Not sure if this medication helped for migraines, as I started adding more estrogen to my Rx mix. I have about 1-2 migraines a month, compared to about 20. F 43 6 months

 5  suffered migrane for 30 odd years. initialy tingling in hands, not sure if the Inderal or life circumstances are causing sadnes / depression. Maybe both Inderal has been a miracle cure for me. Almost immediately the migraines ceased. I take one before bed (I believe the most important one) and at midday. No side affects like weight gain or lethargy but I play tennis weekly ang go to gym twice a week. The only time I get them now is when I have a headcold. for some reason that triggers the migraine behind the eyes. Once it would only take sleeping in, bright light, exercise or stressful situations to set off the 3 day headache. If only I had found a doctor who knew this 30 years ago! I'm going to discuss the sadnes with him and also if it's worth weaning myself off them overtime. Hopefully my body has broken the rebound cycle. M 55 2 years

 3  Asocial, anxiety, aggression This makes you super sleepy, heavy, slow, and lazy feeling. Its impossible to get out of bed in teh morning and I dont even start to think clearly until after 1pm. Slowed digestion/sleeping guts, dry mouth. I decided to try this for my excess of serotonin and all the headache, fatigue, blood sugar problems plus anxiety, aggression, and paranoia that comes with it. The very first dose, I felt so healthy and normal for the first time in years. It was beautiful to be happy and feel good again! But now after only 4 days the debilitating tiredness is robbing me of the power to do anything I need to be doing. As a student, this is not an option for me and I am just lucky I have school break now. I'll have to try something else instead even though I liked how it stopped me from beign so wired and angsty all the time. The tiredness totally takes away any benefit the drug could give since Im not awake long enough to feel happy ;) LOL F 27 4 days

 1  high blood pressure and heart rate tingling in my left arm, cheat aches/pains (mild), H.A. dizzy, felt bad and ended up in an E.R. This med. may work for some, but please be careful. I suspect my high B.P. and H.R. were from too much Benadryl and Senna-Lax (a stimulant laxative). I took the Senna for several days with little help and it might have built up in my system. Please be careful with all OTC and prescription drugs. God made an amazing body, we need not pollute it with drugs in many cases. M 57 4 days

 5  hypertension I normally take it at night before going to bed. One time I forgot to take it at night and took it in the morning. Big mistake; felt drowsy all day where I couldn't even function. Inderal has helped me lower my blood pressure. I have been losing weight and as I lose my bp goes down. I've never had any problems other than what is noted in side effects. Really like this medication and would highly recommend it. F 40 4 years
