Propranolol is used to treat tremors, angina, hypertension, heart rhythm disorders, and other heart or circulatory conditions.
How it Works
Propranolol is known as a beta-blocker. Propranolol works by slowing down the activity of the heart by stopping messages sent by some nerves to the heart. Propranolol does this by blocking tiny areas which are called the beta-adrenergic receptors, where the messages are received. As a result, the heart then beats more slowly and with less force.
