Mary E. on Sep, 9, 2012:
I apologize for the typo. I am age 38.
Mary E. on Sep, 9, 2012:
Female age 3. Took Inderal for 3 years. Experienced Raynauds during the winter and stopped taking Inderal 2-3 months later. It is now 2 1/2 years later and I still experience Raynauds in my toes from time to time. About a year after I stopped Inderal I started experiencing some infrequent pains typical to Trigeminal Neuralgia. However, I dont believe that is related to the Inderal but perhaps important to know w the Raynauds?
My question is: Do Raynaud symptoms typically end when Inderal is discontinued if that is the cause or is it a continuing effect of having taken it?
I appreciate any insights or information you may have.
