Inderal(propanolol) long term or short term side effects?


I am on propanolol for shaking and flushing but my cousin said it caused him erectile dysfunction due to reducing blood flow and lowered his libido. He also said it caused him to be clumsy in his hands and was dropping things and went away when he quit.

My dr said I won't be able to exercise as much and reduce my ability to run but I can deal with that I guess.

What is your experiences and side effects? What dose?

I'm 40 twice daily or 80 twice daily if no relief from 40!

I don't take it too much, but I have moments where my blood pressure gets really low and I have to quickly sit down and eat something. If I take two pills in a day (my doctor recommended three on difficult days/120mg) I feel like I've been hit by a bus and can't get out of bed. I'm very sensitive to medication, however
