Propranolol want to stop taking

I have only been on it for 3 days and only 5 mgs. I don't think I want to take it after reading all the problems to come off it. I'm on it for migraine associated vertigo. Is it ok to stop it now after only being on it for 3 days at 5 mgs a day? Thanks

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

At 5 mg the side effects are minimal and you can continue. However, if you are adamant upon stopping the propranolol then you can do so without any tapering.

Wishing you best of health
