Beta blockers brain fog

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've been taking propranolol 10mg on and off for a few months now trying to get my anxiety under control alongside citalopram

I have health anxiety also and been experiencing brain fog and it makes my anxiety a million times worse as I've never had it before. I know it's not the citalopram as I've been on it a few times

could the beta blockers be causing my detatched foggy feelings?

    hi P no i dont think its the propranalol. 10mg is a really low dose - do you find it does anything? my psych laughed when i said the GP had precribed 10 - he says they prescribe 40. the brain fog is the anxiety - i have it too. ive been taking the propranalol periodically too - either 15 or 20. cant decide if it does anything or not. it has a really short half life apparently -2-4 hours so completely out of your system in a day. are you feeling any better?
