I was diagnosed over active January this year and have been taking carbimazole and propranolol (40mg), I was told the propranolol was just temp whilst they brought my levels down.
I went to my usual 6 weeks appointment and my consultant was off so I had someone different. She told me my levels have gradually come down so I can stop taking the propranolol. Since I’ve stopped taking them (10days ago) I have had terrible chest pains, anxiety and just generally don’t feel right! Has anyone else had this experience? Should I have been weened of these tablets rather then just stopping them? I’m trying to ride it out but the symptoms don’t seem to be subsiding 😩
Yes you should have gradually reduced dose rather than stopping immediately. Call your GP for advice on what to do.
