Propranalol dosage suggestions
 
I have tried 5mg, 10mg, 15mg and 20mg dosages of propranalol and only started to feel a mild effect at the 15-20mg range. I take it for tremors (shaky hands, mostly my left hand) and was wondering how high can I go with this med? I don't have another doc appt for a while so I thought I would consult you all. TIA.

:thanks

LOL! Just found this thread farther down the page. OK now I feel better about going up to at least 40 or 80mg. My tremors are real bad. I've had these for so long (15 years or so, since I was a teenager) that I don't know if my tremors are the root of my anxiety or if it's the other way around. I just wanna stop shaking dammit. :con

You can go up to 100s of mgs. Of course be wise and consult your doc. Large doses are sometimes required to treat tremor.

Wow! I can't beleive I have not been taking higher doses! Well next time I see my doc I am going to get some bigger pills. These 10mg pills aren't for me. What a relief it would be to be able to knock out my tremors with this drug. I am honestly starting to believe all of my social anxiety has been a result of the embarrassment of my shaky hands. YAY INDERAL! (maybe) :)

Of course, beta blockers reduce blood pressure & pulse rate, so going to such high levels (if you don't have high BP & a rapid pluse) may give you excessively low BP & pulse that you don't want either.

Well I guess I'll have to find a happy medium I suppose. My family (the men on my dad's side) have a pretty bad history of heart disease and strokes, so maybe this could kill two birds with one pill (so to speak).
