The long-acting preparation provides full 24-h coverage. The BHAT study (33) proved the beneficial effects of propranolol in post-MI patients for the prevention of reinfarction, sudden death, and fatal and nonfatal MIs. Cigarette smoking alters blood levels of propranolol and may mask CP effects. In nonsmokers, however, the drug has been proved effective, whereas only timolol has been proved effective in RCTs and in the post-MI patient. The drug is strongly lipid soluble and therefore has a high uptake in the brain; this may be the reason for fatigue, the rare occurrence of depression, and vivid dreams.
