    I'm on 40mg twice a day so that's 80mg's total of Propanolol in case that means anything.. I never had the lower doses so can't give an opinion but thought I'd mention it.  Also for me the Propanolol helped more with the physical attacks than the actual anxiety but that's just with me but it makes a massive difference, axiety for me was causing actual attacks (racing heart etc) and that in turn made me fear dying i.e I felt like I was either having or about to have a heart attack!

    Propanolol killed these symptoms and basically saved my life.

      All I can say is 6 months in I'm back to normal.. for me it started around week 6 (Week 5 was a nightmare) and so from 6 -7 - 8 it was a mixed bag but more good than bad and eventually the good days out numbered the bad days and before I knew it everyday was a good day.

      I can't say it enough times about getting out of bed and keeping yourself busy,  I didn't have a choice in the matter as I'm responsible for the school runs twice a day regardless of my condition on said day but looking back I don't think I would of got this for had I kept feeling sorry for myself or refusing to get up etc.

       best advice is to stay focused and keep yourself busy and don't allow yourself to much time to dwell over it and stay positive and talk on here.. it helped me alot knowing others were going through the same thing as me and getting through it themselves.

      Yeah it's like I suddenly had a relapse, tbh week 4 felt good and i was having more good than bad episodes but then week 5 came in and I just had a funny turn and that in turn broke my confidence and like a dominoe effect I brought on stress and that caused an increase in anxiety and I remember even coming on here and doubting the meds but somehow I pulled myself through and literally week 6-7 it all started getting goods again.
