Inderal LA Dosage: An IntroductionThe dose of Inderal® LA (propranolol hydrochloride sustained-release) your healthcare provider prescribes will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your age
- The medical condition being treated
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you may be currently taking
- How you respond to Inderal LA.
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
Dose of Inderal LA for High Blood PressureThe recommended starting Inderal LA dosage for people with high blood pressure (hypertension) is 80 mg once a day. After a couple of weeks, based on the blood pressure response and/or Inderal LA side effects, the amount may be increased or decreased. Your healthcare provider may also add a diuretic (a "water pill") or another blood pressure medication if your blood pressure is not controlled by this medication alone.
The usual dose for most people is somewhere between 120 mg and 160 mg once a day, although sometimes much higher dosages are necessary.
