What is Propranolol?
Propranolol is a beta-blocker, which works by reducing the effects of adrenaline on the body and thus reducing your heart rate. While this can be an effective medication for high blood pressure and anxiety, it can also be used to treat benign essential tremor. How does Propranolol work? Atenolol works by blocking the effects of the hormone, adrenaline. When you take beta blockers, your heart beats more slowly and with less force, which in turn brings your blood pressure down and can also be used to treat benign essential tremor.

What are the benefits of taking Propranolol?
Benign essential tremor (ET) is a movement disorder that results in shaking that a person cannot control. This can be exceptionally hard to deal with on a day-to-day basis. Sadly there is no cure to ET so the goal is to simply manage the symptoms as best as you can. This can be done with lifestyle changes, such as limiting stress, avoiding things that trigger tremors, such as caffeine and by getting enough rest. Taking Propranolol will lower the effects of adrenaline in your body, forcing your heart to slow down. This couples with lifestyle changes, can drastically improve ET.
