hi, i am just looking for some advice..
in november my GP put me on propranolol 40mg x3 daily for anxiety at that point my heart rate was fine just like it normally is. i went back a month later because my symptoms wasn't getting any better they was getting worse- he checked my heart rate and that was fine so he upped my dose to 80mg 2x daily... i found i got worse! so i went back to the GP on the 24/1/20 my heart rate had lowered! so he dropped my dose to 40mg x3 daily but said only take 2 if possible... 2 weeks later i had to call for an ambulance as i had a massive panic attack. my heart rate was 41bpm at that point.the ECG was fine so the paramedics called my GP who told me to stop taking them. i went to see my GP the day after my heart rate was back up at 56bpm so he told me to come off them. i am now day 4 without and i feel shaky, anxious,sick,tired, fast heart when i do something. i have read about the tablets and it says you shouldn't just stop the medication? what can i do? im scared i might have a heart attack? im normally a healthy 23 year old female.
