Beta-blockers affect the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins). Propranolol is used to treat tremors, angina (chest pain), hypertension (high blood pressure), heart rhythm disorders, and other heart or circulatory conditions. It is also used to treat or prevent heart attack, and to reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches. Hemangeol (propranolol oral liquid 4.28 milligrams) is given to infants who are at least 5 weeks old to treat a genetic condition called infantile hemangiomas. Hemangiomas are caused by blood vessels grouping together in an abnormal way. These blood vessels form benign (non-cancerous) growths that can develop into ulcers or red marks on the skin. Hemangiomas can also cause more serious complications inside the body (in the liver, brain, or digestive system). The product is chromatographically pure, sterile and apyrogenic with a specific activity between 500 m Ci and 2 Ci/μmole at the time of use. The synthesis involves the preparation of C acetone followed by fixation of the isopropyl group on the precursor [1-amino-3-(1-naphtyloxy)-2-propanol] by formation of an imine, then reduction of the latter by sodium cyanoboro hydride. The influence of certain parameters (reagents, precursor, impurities) on the final product is discussed.
A widely used non-cardioselective beta-adrenergic antagonist. Propranolol is used in the treatment or prevention of many disorders including acute myocardial infarction, arrhythmias, angina pectoris, hypertension, hypertensive emergencies, hyperthyroidism, migraine, pheochromocytoma, menopause, and anxiety.
