From this study (1 year ago):
prescribed propranolol to see if it would calm recent intermittent essential tremors. Within 4 days blood pressure had dropped from a normal 125/75 range to 90/60 and heart rate from normal 75 to 55. Phoned doctor and told me to stop Propranolol. Withdrawal effects for 2-3 days with heart rate going up to 100 plus and blood pressure slowly recovered.
