What Are the Considerations and Precautions of Propranolol?

Important warnings when taking Propranolol include:

  • Abruptly stopping treatment
  • Drowsiness warnings
  • Diabetes warnings
  • Asthma warnings

Propranolol has a “black box” warning, the FDA’s most stringent warning used to warn the public and health care providers of serious side effects.

The black box warning has to do with the abrupt discontinuation of Propranolol which can cause heart damage.

When discontinuing long-term administration of Propranolol, gradually reduce the dose over a period of 1 to 2 weeks. This taper should be closely monitored by your healthcare provider and should never be initiated independently. Stopping the medication abruptly can make your condition worse and cause irreversible damage to your heart.

Propranolol can cause drowsiness so do not drive or operate heavy machinery or perform activities that require alertness until you know how the drug affects you.

Tell your doctor if you are diagnosed with diabetes before taking Propranolol. Propranolol can lower blood sugar and mask the signs of low blood sugar such as heart rate increase, sweating, and shakiness.

Remember to always speak with your doctor and follow their instructions about taking the medication.
