Beta blockers please positive comments only

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi all please only positive comment I can't cope with worrying about bad comments with the meds. I took myself to the doctor yesterday on my way home from work as was feeling odd, I had anxiety about 12 months ago and no signs of anything for months and months an all of a sudden bang it's back. I stuck in vicious circle had the physical symptoms keep thinking about it. I weaned mysel off my meds last time citlopram and was only I tiny dosage anyways x yesterday she have me propranolol beta blockers as it's the physical symptoms that freak me out! Has anyone been on beta blockers and how did you do with them?

I won't give up I still walking to work I always take my headphones so listen to music to distract me I carry on my day as normal so I am lucky I can do these things as I know a lot of people can't. I started the meds yesterday so I know I need to give them chance to get into my system. The other good thing was when I was at drs yesterday I was having an anxiety attack so wen she checked my pulse my heart my blood pressure etc everything was completely normal so I know the feelings are my anxiety only xx

    Hi. I've been on corgard, forget generic name, but beta blocker was the best for me, no complaints. Its used for stage fright. But its hard to explain but you don't get upset, anxiety its like your calm, your chest doesn't pound or pulse to trigger anxiety. Don't even notice in taking medicine. Its all good. Good luck😊

    I'm not at all a fan of meds, but beta blockers in general are very well tolerated by most. As above they are great for calming. Which for many is all they need to get things on an even keel. They are the only meds I've ever considered and as I'm really not keen on meds that's saying something! My partner does take them as needed and she has no bad effects from them

    I used the propranol beta blockers and they're completely stopped the trouble I had with a racing heart. However didn really do anything for the feelings of nervousness

      Its a good idea. I've thought about them to see if they stop the lump in the throat feeling as they tell me itsncaused by my throat tightening when I'm anxious - which seems all the time

      I never had the throat, lump problems until this year. All these years I never had that and its the worst feeling like when the Dr. Checks your thyroid and squeezes it. So I'm back on corgard.

      I was on 1x80mg per day then went on 40mg twice a day and although its the same dose I found it much better, my symptoms were all physical and I really felt a difference, I don't freak out as much anymore, think you will find this medication a real help x

      I have got this exact thing! Never had it before but weirdly got it in last couple of weeks when I haven't been taking my beta blockers. Picking up a new prescription tmw and glad to hear it's helped you with that. It's so horrible!
