It looks like she's doing great on Propranolol! My son has been on it for about the same amount of time as your daughter. It's controlled the hemangioma from growing, but the results haven't been quite as dramatic as what I see with your daughter. Still, I'm pleased with how Propranolol has been helping my son

He's currently on 1.2 ml twice/day. How much does your daughter take? I'm wondering if being on more Propranolol would help my son's hemangioma even more.
