If you Google "side effects of Propranolol" you can find a host of results. One problem is that there is not a whole lot of information about the side effects of the drug on children since it's not often that kids have a need for beta blockers and the use of propranolol for hemangioma treatment is so new.

The most common side effect that I've heard is the hypoglycemia and mottling of hands and feet. We've not had either of those problems in the 3.5 months my daughter has been on propranolol.
