Propranolol is a prescription-only drug that works by blocking out the effects of adrenaline in patients, hence the name “beta blocker.” Accordingly, when taking Propranolol, your heart beats slower and less forcibly. As a result, your blood pressure is lowered considerably. This drug is given to people with problems when it comes to their blood pressure.
It can be available in several forms, such as an oral solution, an oral tablet, an oral-extended-release capsule, and even as an injectable. The generic form of Propranolol can only come as an oral tablet. It has generic and brand names.

What is high blood pressure?
High blood pressure is a condition that affects most people. It’s a condition where the force of your blood against the walls of your blood vessels is consistently too high, which will lead to problems later in life. When narrow vessels and arteries endure more forceful blood pumping, then a person is at risk of high blood pressure. It’s important to maintain a gentle heartbeat to avoid wearing out blood vessels as this can led to heart diseases in the future. Additionally, during moments of distress and anxiety, the patient needs to decrease their heart rate. In doing so, they can even participate in social events and daily activities that they were not allowed to take part of.
