What are your thoughts on Propranolol?
Why do you think it's being described to treat so many different 'afflictions'?
Why do you think it's received so much funding to test it again and again on different 'problems'?

I have been taking Propanalol for 10 years now to suppress cluster headaches. To be honest, without it I couldn't live a normal life. I haven't had time to read the whole OP. I'm not racist in any way but that isn't because of the drug. People cannot be drugged out of racism.
Propranolol works to inhibit the actions of norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter that enhances memory consolidation.
Norepinephrine is released when a host of physiological changes are activated by a stressful event.
The noradrenergic neurons in the brain form a neurotransmitter system, that, when activated, exerts effects on large areas of the brain. The effects are alertness and arousal, and influences on the reward system.

I've been taking it for several years for high blood pressure. It works so-so in that regard on me, but in regard to reducing or preventing racism, I don't think it is working!
