 1  Migraines Hasn't had any effect in preventing migraines. I'm so thirsty but feel so bloated I feel sick just thinking about drinking. Also, my nausea has intensified, my head nods for no apparent reason, my body rocks backwards and forwards, vomit has been more acidic, difficulty sleeping, when I do sleep I wake up suddenly as if someone is breaking into the house. I wish I hadn't started taking it, I would advise not to use M 38 10 days

 4  migraines I took this for migraines and later found it helped with palpitations, too. I didn't realize this caused dehydration - until I saw reviews - which I've had almost as long as I've taken this drug. I worried it might be diabetes, which tests always came up negative. My doctor never suggested it was the Inderal. Hmm. The other side effect is impotence, total lack of interest, which really didn't start until my early 50's. It definitely helped my migraines, which were severe. The last 10 years, I've only had 2 when I missed a dose of Inderal. F 63 22 years

 3  Migraine Weight gain, insomnia, dreams, tiredness, dizzy spells, lack of concentration. I think it has helped in the fact that most times pain killers will now have some effect on my migraine where they were having none, but I now cannot sleep at all without sleeping tablets. I still have chronic migraine everyday of my life so I am now considering not taking it anymore as the weight gain is so depressing. I am going to look for another solution, the side effects are just too high a price to pay for the minimal benefit. F 55 365 days

 3  Migraines Excessive weight gain, fatigue, dizziness, feeling feint, pins and needles in hands In the two years I have taken Inderal I have gained 3 stone. I have tried every diet and I excercise a lot. The weight gain has really got me down because I was always skinny before this even after having a child. I was diagnosed with acute migraines by a neurologist and put on the tablets and I have not had an aura migraine since, however, I have had a lot of migraines where I am sick and see wavy lines regularly. No doctor seemed to want to admit that inderal was the cause for the weight gain but finally I saw one last week who is going to prescribe me an alternative. The fatigue is also a nightmare if you lead a busy life. I would advise anyone who is thinking about taking these tablets to take the side effects into account as they really have made my life miserable and it has taken me nearly a year to get a doctor to listen to me!

 3  Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia I did not notice it initially, but looking back, this drug has made it impossible to lose weight. I used to take this for migraine headaches from the age of 5 to 17 when they calmed down. Then in my late 20's I was diagnosed with Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia. I started the drug to slow my heart down so it wasn't always racing. I learned that it is a non-selective beta blocker and inhibits the ability for you to burn fat. I gained 30 pounds and I can't even lose 10 on this drug. I tried every diet and I have NEVER been overweight. I asked my cardiologist to take me off it. I am now weaning off at half the dosage. Hopefully the heart rate issue is gone, because I have tried everything to lose weight. I eat healthy, work out 6 days a week for an hour and the weight should be coming off. I'm only 30 years old!

 4  Hyperhidrosis Have to say this drug saved me, my condition was literally ruining me life, I merely existed if you get me. Side effects are complete lack of energy which I'm hoping will pass in time and bowels a bit ropey as in on a vacation and need to get back to work!!! The key with this drug is taken it on an empty stomach I was taken it for 2wks before I coped this. I take 160mg about 7am back to bed for 40 winks and then get up 8.30 shower and brekkie and off for the day, I hope everyone with the condition finds a solution that works for them it's a hideous life crippling thing that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy F 27 6 weeks
 3  Hypertension, tachacardia SEVERE windedness. Couldn't get off the couch without breathing heavy. Complete lack of appetite. Vision "weirdness". Nervousness in the mornings. Feelings of chest "congestion" "pressure" resulting in claustrophobia. Discouragement. Diarrhea. Skin on trunk became scaly and flaky, elbows cracked and peeled. Some dizziness/lightheadedness. DID control my pulse/ BP nicely. Side-effects not conducive to raising 4 little boys. F 33 1 weeks

 5  Migraines and Daily Headaches A little tired and trouble staying asleep at night. This drug changed my life. It took about two weeks to work, but then it greatly reduced my migraines. I was having headaches about 5 days a week and now every once in awhile. F 39 3 weeks

 4  Migraine For the first 6 weeks, I was extremely tired, had very little energy and felt faint but was able to combat this by eating little and oftern in order to prevent my blood sugar levels from dropping and by taking the tablets at bedtime. After the 6 weeks, this has gone but since then I have found excercising more difficult (I can still do high impact aerobics but just find it more difficult-almost as if I am doing it with weights strapped to me) and find that I pump more, paticularly just after taking my tablets. The migraines are now under control and I am hoping that I can start to reduce my dose and come off inderal in the near future. Before taking inderal, I suffered mild migraines which lasted on average 5 days at a time. Since taking inderal and giving my body 6 weeks to get used to it, I have had a hadful of migraines lasting 1-3 days and they are very mild to the extent that I can get away with just taking ibuprofen and I am fine. I also came off the pill and think any woman suffering from migraines should look at non-hormal contraception (I got the coil which while it was sore getting fitted, I feel so much better since coming off the pill and think that this was the cause of my migraines). I would definately recommond inderal to migrain sufferers but would advise taking it easy for the first 6 weeks to allow your body time to get used to it. F 26 6 months

 3  Severe Hyperthyroidism No problems with weight gain, which is good, but the cold legs (like frozen sides of beef up to mid-thigh) and hands - I felt I had to half the dose to get rid of those symptoms, but I STILL have cold hands and cold feet, just not cold LEGS. Lethargy, "kind of" depression - I am just... indifferent to EVERYTHING - I don't care... about anything... Painful to walk due to frozen feet - they feel swollen when I wake up... No additional sleep problems, but I was already on temazepam for my long term insomnia... I haven't had a dream in EONS, fantastic, scary, intense or otherwise... :( It definitely helped my heart palps and flutters, and the craziness of severe hyperthyroidism, but the icy hands and legs has become intolerable (walking is painful and awkward...) and so is my indifference to everything... and I HATE not dreaming.. oh, and it never did get rid of the mild daily headaches I get, either... altho' I didn't have a problem with that as far as I'm concerned. But: I AM NOT ME, ANYMORE. I'm seeing the endocrinologist tomorrow to discuss this mess... F 42 6 weeks

 5  Migraine Vivid Dreams Ever had a drug that changed your life? Well this certainly was a game changer for me! I wonder why I suffered for years before any Dr. thought to prescribe this for me..such a shame they hadn't done it sooner! Initially the drug made me VERY VERY tired (at probably the time in my life when I needed the most not to be any more severely exhausted than I was as a mother who works full-time and had an 8 month old and a 4 year old!) My Doctor told me to stick it out for six whole weeks and that I wouldn't be dissapointed...Those 6 weeks were really rough (and it was the full 6 weeks, I tell ya!) and I so wanted to give up, but I am sooooo glad I stuck it out! All of you people who give up on it after a short time...I'm here to tell you, don't. The Dr.'s goal was to eliminate my migraines completely. While I can't say it has eliminated them, it has hands down reduced the severity of my migraines and eliminated the naseau that I had along with it and for that alone I am greatful. I no longer live my life fearing the next migraine or cutting short a vacation in the middle of the night to go home because of a dibilitating migraine attack. So, please give it a chance. Stick it out for a whole six weeks, if at the end of six weeks you still don't like it, then stop. But I'll bet you'll probably be thanking me, instead. :) F 38 5 years

 3  generalised panic disorder upset stomach, nausea, fatigue and shortness of breath, sleeping disturbances including crazy crazy dreams! Slight confusion like your brains gone on a short holiday and left you behind, this was particularly bad when i accidentally took two one day. Mixed feelings, i was having mild panic attacks daily which were getting steadily worse and desperate for somehting to help, at first the medication was a relief but the side effects, especially nausea and sleep disturbances are driving me mental. Also although my rapid heartrate and other psysiological symptoms are gone i still get anxious for no reason, so i dont think il continue with it. F 20 6 weeks

 5  Chronic Migraine Feeling more calm, slightly harder to do cardio workout, vivid funny dreams - overall negligible! I have not had a headache for 1 week straight. This is a miracle as I am used to 2 or 3 per week. I even enjoyed a glass of RED wine and was fine. WOW that is like a another miracle. Sleep has been fine as long as I stay on my regular schedule, which is what I find to be key to anybody's good night's sleep. As per the weight gain, I have not had any. As a fitness nutritionist and fitness instructor I believe that if you eat calories according to your BMR and work out regularly including cardio 3-4 times a week you should not have too many problems with weight gain, no matter what drug your on. If you are still gaining weight drop the calories! We will see how the long term effects are of Inderal LD 80mg (generic), but so far it has given me a better quality of life. F 30 21 days

 2  Migraine preevention Excessive and extreme flatulence - so bad that I had a total GI investigation and was being treated as if I had IBS )Which I don't have), SOB on exersion, weight gain, bloating. I was supposed to be taking a higher dose (140mg per day) but I felt too tired on a low dose and thought I couldn't function to go to work etc on a higher dose. The flatulence became socially crippling and I stopped the Inderal cold turkey about three weeks ago. Although I have had the flu, I have also had shocking, bursting headaches at night and have to sleep upright, intense fatigue during the day, emotionally labile and nauseous. The gas has stopped (hurrah!!) but the aftermath is making me feel totally despondent! While on the Inderal, I did not notice a reduction in frequency of my migraine but there was lessening of their intensity. The one other plus was that I did not have stage fright! F 57 2 years

INDERAL LA  (PROPRANOLOL HYDROCHLORIDE):  This medication is a beta blocker used to treat high blood pressure, irregular heartbeats, shaking (tremors), and other conditions as determined by your doctor. It is used after a heart attack to improve survival. It is also used to prevent migraine headaches and chest pain (angina). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Preventing chest pain can help improve your ability to exercise. This drug works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body (such as epinephrine) that affect the heart and blood vessels. This effect reduces heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
