A child must be evaluated for a number of issues prior to going on Propranolol... no cardiac issues, normal liver function, etc. It is not a new drug, but new to treating hemangiomas. Many specialists are using it now, but I caution everyone to make sure they ask questions, do research and understand risks involved. No medicince or treatment goes without risk. The benefits often are greater than the risks.
