Hi! Has anyone started propranolol or other beta blockers and felt absolutely worse?? it’s only been a few days but i’ve slept awfully and seemed to have more episodes. i’m wondering if this is normal and should go away or will it just get worse?

      Yes, I was started on propranolol and it made me worse. I was forgetting huge chucks of things, doing weird things, passing out a lot more, couldn't remember anything etc......... I was changed to bisoprolol & all is well

      Yes. I tried Metoprolol months ago and had an adverse reaction after one dose so my doctor stopped it. Now I'm on Propranolol 5mg 3x a day. It's much more tolerable but I experience so many side effects. I take it for POTS, and when I stand I'm so much more dizzy than before. I'm also sleeping all the time, I can't feel hunger as much, and I have absolutely ridiculous dreams/nightmares. I'm hoping I'll adjust to it but it's a DOOZY thus far.

      I’m on propranolol right now and it’s giving me side affects like exhaustion and blood sugar drops. This only started after I had been on it for a while though.

      I haven’t taken propranolol but I do take metoprolol. When I first started it, didn’t kick in right away. Then it started to help me but it made me very sleepy yet I had trouble falling asleep. They just switched my dose to once a day in the morning and now I’m sleeping better. I also take melatonin at night to help with sleep
