My doctor prescribed me just 10mg of Propranolol 3 times a day for anxiety just over a week ago, and I'm feeling absolutely awful!
All week I've felt a bit spaced out, spoke to a nurse at my GP surgery who suggested i cut down to twice a day.
Yesterday afternoon, I took a turn for the worse. My hands and feet went cold and numb, felt flu-like symptoms, loss if appetite, and completely spaced out and feelings if panic that I was going to pass out. Then headaches and weakness. And this is only 10mg!!
Spoke to the GP over the phone who said to stop taking them immediately and I should feel better today. I don't- I feel the same.
Has anybody else had the same side effects? They're really frightening. I feel horrible! I'd rather have the heart palpitations I had in the first place!
Please help thank you.

Feel for you if you're on 40mg of the things!
I was presciribed propanolol as a migraine prophylaxis, I went on to 80mg and was like the walking dead, totally out of my skull and couldn't concentrate on anything, work was a nightmare. After a month my GP dropped me to 40mg, same symptoms, no improvement, dropped to 20mg, yet again no change, in the end he took me off them and onto a totally different drug, which is working perfectly. You have my sympathy, they are horrible drugs.
Glad you've found something that works for you.
But I was very pleased to be off those. I won't take Beta Blockers again. Thought I was going to pass out, but I never did. So try not to worry if they make you feel like that. Hope you feel better soon
