Default doses of propranolol per pay?

Just curious how many times per day you all are giving propranolol? My daughter takes it 3 times a day but I've heard some take it twice.

We have been giving our 4 month old daughter .85 ml 3 times a day every 6-8 hours. Going back to the doctor next week and we may be increasing the dose.

We just had a 6 week follow up appt with our dr and she said in a month or 2 when we start to wean my daughter off propranolol we will switch from 3 doses to 2 doses per day with 12 hours in between. At that point we will be out of the rapid growth stage. Maybe that is one explanation for 2 versus 3 doses.

Hi everyone. My daughter has been on 2 doses/day from the strat. She strated a lot later though at about 11 months old when the involuting had already started. The changes have been great
