Propranolol Respiratory Arrest Causes and Reviews


Sleep apnea is a common disorder that causes your breathing to stop or get very shallow. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour.

The most common type is obstructive sleep apnea. It causes your airway to collapse or become blocked during sleep. Normal breathing starts again with a snort or choking sound. People with sleep apnea often snore loudly. However, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea.

You are more at risk for sleep apnea if you are overweight, male, or have a family history or small airways. Children with enlarged tonsils or adenoids may also get it.

Doctors diagnose sleep apnea based on medical and family histories, a physical exam, and sleep study results.

When your sleep is interrupted throughout the night, you can be drowsy during the day. People with sleep apnea are at higher risk for car crashes, work-related accidents, and other medical problems. If you have it, it is important to get treatment. Lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, surgery, and breathing devices can treat sleep apnea in many people.

Propranolol Respiratory Arrest Reviews

Thu, 05 Aug 2010

I have been taking 80mg per day for anxiety for two years with no side effects. Three weeks ago my doctor increased my dose to 120mg. After two weeks of being on the higher dose I started to experience head tremors. I went to my doctor who seemed to think the tremors were caused by anxiety so he increased my dose to 160mg, the tremors got a lot worse after a couple of days. I have now decreaed my dose back to 80mg per day for the last week, the symptons have decreased but I am still having some problems. I wanted to know if anyone else have experienced these symptons and if I,m ever going to go back to normal.
