How is it used?

Inderal is used to treat high blood pressure or atrial fibrillation. It is used in patients with angina pectoris to decrease the frequency of angina and increase exercise tolerance. It is used to lower the risk of cardiac death in certain patients who have survived a heart attack. It is used to control certain types of tremors, a heart condition called hypertrophic subaortic stenosis, or certain symptoms of pheochromocytoma (an adrenal tumor). It is used to prevent migraines. Inderal is a beta blocker. It works by slowing down the heart and decreasing the amount of blood it pumps. This helps lower blood pressure, helps the heart pump more efficiently, and reduces the workload on the heart. It is not known exactly how Inderal works to treat migraines or tremors.
