Inderal Precautions and Warnings
Inderal precautions and warnings are often related to conditions your doctor needs to know about before you take the drug (for example, emphysema) and the safety of taking Inderal if you are pregnant or nursing. There is also a risk of extreme low blood pressure and/or a slow heart rate. If Inderal precautions and warnings are a concern, your healthcare provider may monitor your condition more closely or recommend a different drug.
