This is a bit of a niche one, but thought it was worth a try…
I take beta-blockers (propanalol) to prevent pretty severe migraines. I also train twice a day and as the beta-blockers suppress my HR this is an issue for the second workout of the day which is typically 9-10 hours later if I take the propanalol after my morning workout. It feels like the brakes are on, which makes sense and that’s what the meds are meant to do.
Beta-blockers are mostly taken by people with heart problems, so not the most likely to be training hard, and I’ve not been able to find other endurance athletes in a similar position to me. Does anyone on here know anyone/ people that train for endurance and take daily beta-blockers? Keen to compare notes on timing, dosage, impact on adaptations, approach during race periods etc
I’ve asked doctors and they surprisingly have no referencable examples of people in my position, which seems surprising.
