Re: Question about propranolol & fast heart rate
One effect of propranolol, a Beta Blocker, is that it slows the beating of the heart. If you withdraw too quickly, you can experience all kinds of nasty symptoms, including a fast hard heart rate. Usually, if doctors want to have a patient withdraw from a Beta Blocker, they will slowly wean their patient off of the drug, in order to minimize uncomfortable, or even dangerous symptoms.
