Inderal is the brand name for a treatment called propanolol. It’s a prescription medication that’s used in order to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure is a serious condition that if not treated can increase the chances of suffering from a heart attack, a stroke or kidney problems. Several things cause it, but in many cases the probably gets really bad when a person eats a lot of high sodium foods and doesn’t drink enough water.
There’s also instances where a person might be genetically at a higher risk for suffering from high blood pressure.

In addition to treating high blood pressure problems, it can also be used in order to treat severe chest pain problems (angina), migraine headaches, thickened heart muscle (hypertrophic subaortic stenosis), tremors, a rare condition called pheochromocytoma and a movement disorder called akathisia.
Inderal is what’s called a beta blocker. The way it works is it alters the response to nerve impulses in the heart as well as other body parts. This makes the heart beat slower and it reduces blood pressure. When blood pressure lowers, the heart is able to pump blood in a more efficient manner.
