What is Generic Inderal (Propranolol)?
Generic Inderal (Propranolol) is a medication used to treat hypertension and other conditions. The drug is non-selective beta-blocker acting on both beta and beta2-adrenergic receptors.
When should the drug be used?

The drug is also used for the initiation and intensification of labor activity if it is weak and to prevent postpartum complications caused by the impaired uterine contractility.
How the drug acts?
In cardiac ischemia, Generic Inderal (Propranolol) reduces the frequency of angina attacks, increases the tolerance towards physical activity and reduces the need to use nitroglycerine.
For hypertension, the drug is mainly effective at the early stages and in people under 40 years of age with hyperdynamic type of blood circulation and with increased renin content. The hypotensive effect is accompanied by a decrease in cardiac output due to a showling down of the pulse and in the stroke volume of the heart. The systemic vascular resistance is gradually increased.
Lowering the effect of sympathetic impulse on the b-adrenergic receptors in the heart, the medication lowers the strength of the heartbeats and heart rate, blocks the positive chrono-inotropic effect of catecholamines. Due to this, the myocardium requires less oxygen for normal work.
Propranolol-based drugs also lower the intraocular pressure and the secretion of aqueous humor.
