    Default Metrogel increase flushing?

    Hi all,

    I've been on Propranolol for flushing for about a month and a half and it has been helping greatly, however I was also recently put on Metrogel and - after about two weeks - I've gone back to flushing daily.

    Has Metrogel been known to increase flushing? Should I stop the Metrogel or will this side-effect stop after time?

    Thanks for your help.

    It has increased flushing for me but when I put Neutrogena Healthy Defense daily moisturizer (spf 50) over it, I don't usually get the flushing. Also, put it on sparingly if possible.

    most of the anecdotal evidence from people on here is not good regarding metrogel. if you get good results with propranolol, then i'd just go with that alone for a while to see how it goes.

    Yeah, I quit the Metrogel yesterday (4 July) and didn't get any flushing. Hopefully the propranolol will go back to how it was working before.

    Will report back in a few days.
