Still struggling with palpitations Everyday curently on Propranolol

They make me feel tense and after taking a tablet I feel like my heart thuds
With a little fluttering too.

But when I take my pulse its normal?

Has anyone felt the same on these? Or have an idea of aa better beta blocker I might be able to switch too?

Thanks x

Beta blockers don't just slow your heart rate they increase the stregnth of the contraction, so you are feeling that.

I took beta blockers for migraines for a while and felt the same. I could feel my heart beating and it did feel like palpitations. They didn't help the migraines and made me feel very down so I stopped them.
