Comment from: joyce gaus, 75 or over on Treatment for 10+ years (Patient) Published: November 25

Started taking when I was in my 20'sfor rapid heart beat. Am now 75. I've never had any side effects. I have tried to stop taking it but the rapid heart beats come back. So I continue to take it. Kinda like "if it ain't broke don't try to fix it"

Comment from: 45-54 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: August 23

I have taken Sectral since March, 2012. Last week the dosage was doubled to 400mg twice a day. I have episodes of irregular heartbeat several times a day and also two of my valves have moderate leakage. I am so tired on this medicine and have had some gastro side-effects. My biggest complaint at the moment is the vivid dreams I have every single night. Have others experienced this? Please reply. Thanks

I was prescribed this medication to hel lessen the number of times I wake up with migraines. 200mg wasn't enough so I'm going up to 400mg. I take it at night so hopefully there will be no negative side effects because I have naturally low blood pressure.
