Inderal Medication - Uses & Side Effects
PROPRANOLOL (Inderal®) belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers. Beta-blockers reduce the workload on the heart and help it to beat more regularly. Propranolol controls, but does not cure, high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure may not make you feel sick, but it can lead to serious heart problems. Propranolol has a number of other uses; for some of these the sustained-release capsules are not suitable. Propranolol steadies irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias) and relieves chest pain (angina), and it may be helpful after a heart attack. Propranolol can help prevent migraine headaches; relieve serious tremors (uncontrollable shaking); and help certain problems related to the thyroid gland and adrenal gland. Generic propranolol tablets and extended-release capsules are available.
