The pharmacokinetics of propranolol after oral and intravenous administration was studied at rest and on an exercise day in 8 healthy subjects. On the exercise day the subjects performed physical exercise for 7 h, consisting of bicycle ergometer exercise at 50% of maximal work capacity and outdoor walking. Propranolol (80 mg p.o., or 0.2 mg/kg body weight i.v.) was administered 30 min before the start of the exercise. After oral administration the terminal phase halflife, (t1/2 beta) and area under the curve (AUC) were both significantly reduced on the exercise day compared to the rest day. The bioavailability of propranolol was reduced by prolonged physical exercise and plasma levels of propranolol were about 30% lower at the end of the exercise day than at the end of the rest day. After intravenous administration, t1/2 beta was also reduced on the exercise day as compared to the rest day. AUC, clearance and volume of distribution did not differ on the two days. On the other hand, indocyanine green (ICG) clearance was significantly reduced during the bicycle ergometry periods on the exercise day. The combination of reduced ICG clearance, suggesting a reduction in hepatic blood flow, and a decreased t1/2 beta and unchanged clearance of propranolol on the exercise day was unexpected.
