Propranolol SR is known to be effective in treating symptoms such as blood pressure, heart rate, kidney problems etc.
Propranolol SR belongs to the class of medicines known as beta-blockers. These beta-blockers change the way our body responds to certain types of nerve impulses. Propranolol SR stabilizes blood vessels inside the brain and thus stops them from dilating. As a result, this medicine is helpful in decreasing the frequency of migraines.
Propranolol SR comes in the form of a tablet. Swallow these tablets as a whole, do not chew or crush them. Some brands might allow you to break the tablet into the half with the help of a scoreline. Take the medicine along with water before a meal.
The recommended dosage of Propranolol SR for treating and preventing migraines starts from 40mg taken twice or thrice a day. This may be increased to 120mg or even 240mg, depending on your condition. Your medical team will guide you as to how you should split this dose throughout the entire day.
