Default Hemangioma/Propranolol Progression Pictures.

Today we are DONE with propranolol. My DD started on it when she was 3 months old. She was on it 2x a day until she was almost 9 months old. Then we did one time a day for a month, then one time a day every other day for a month. Today marks the end of that "every other day" for a month. So we are officially weaned. We have not seen any rebounding as we weaned so hopefully we are in the clear. We go back to her cardiologist and dermatologist the end of May.

I thought it may help those of you on the beginning of your journey to have a progression thru pictures so you could see the changes -- We choose propranolol because of the Hemangiomas location and that it had begun to effect her vision. We don't regret our decision at all.

Good Luck!

That is amazing! Have you weaned her off yet, curious about regrowth? Did your daughter have many side effects? Mine is 6 months and her dr. wants to get her on propanolol too. Here are her pics
