Default propranolol and caffiene

Can i combine propranolol with caffeine or any other psycho-stimulant? would this possibly reduce the level of tachycardia and or anxiety, jitteriness?
or should i avoid this combination all together?

Normal doses of caffeine can of course be combined with Propranolol. High doses / overdoses of potent psychostimulants are a different story... pure beta blockers could make things even worse here, a drug like carvedilol (combined alpha-/beta blocker) would work in such cases.

Not sure if this helps, but I've had a cup of coffee from Starbucks while on 20MG of propanolol. I wouldn't say I felt a lot of different, but I think it should be avoided.

You can have caffeine (if not overdoing it) with propanolol but since propanolol can be used off label for tremors, don't expect it to have adequite control of that if you drink too much coffee.

Caffiene junkie here. Also a propranolol user. No noticeable difference.
