Common side effects include slow heart rate, short-term memory loss, and fatigue. Among the side effects of Inderal that you should report to your healthcare provider are confusion, irregular heartbeat, and difficulty breathing or swallowing.
An Overview of Inderal Side EffectsAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Inderal® (propranolol hydrochloride). However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate the drug quite well. If people do develop Inderal side effects, in many cases, they are minor, meaning they require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are far less common, but can still occur.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Inderal. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Inderal side effects with you.)
