I was recently put on propranolol 40 mg, three times daiy, after having a thyroid storm. Two days ago, I tapered down to two times a day as my blood pressure has been really low. My cardiologist upon discharge told me not to taper lower than that. Last night, my blood pressure was low again so I took half my dose (20 mg).
