Blood Pressure Home > Inderal Uses

Inderal uses include migraine prevention, control of pheochromocytoma symptoms, and improved survival following a heart attack. While not approved for use in children, several of its off-label uses include treating conditions seen in children. For instance, Inderal can slow down the progression of aortic dilation in children with Marfan syndrome. Other off-label Inderal uses include treating hyperthyroidism, relieving alcohol withdrawal symptoms, and treating anxiety.

An Overview of Inderal Uses

Inderal® (propranolol hydrochloride) has been licensed to treat a number of conditions. These Inderal uses include:
High Blood Pressure
A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers (for example, 120/80). The top number is known as the systolic blood pressure, and the bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure. High blood pressure (hypertension) is defined as an average blood pressure higher than 140/90, based on multiple blood pressure readings.
In clinical studies, Inderal has been shown to significantly lower systolic and diastolic blood pressures. The higher the dose of Inderal, the greater the drop in blood pressure is expected to be. By lowering blood pressure, Inderal can decrease the risks that occur with long-term high blood pressure (see Effects of High Blood Pressure). Inderal does not, however, cure high blood pressure.
