    Bisoprolol's main purpose is to protect people from high blood pressure, tachycardias, arrhytmias and heart problems.

    It can help with anxiety also, but there are way better drugs for anxiety which don't mess with your heart and blood pressure.

    Medicines used most often to treat panic attacks include:

    Antidepressants, such as Paxil, Prozac, or Zoloft.

    Benzodiazepines, such as Ativan, Valium, or Xanax.

    Hi there,

    Beta blockers do not stop anxiety they can only calm symtoms like palpatations.

    Ive had a double heart bypass three years ago at the age of 43,ever since then ive suffered bad anxiety,it started with anxiety attacks,however you learn to cope,and now i can stop the attacks but still remain anxious .

    Some doctors say beta blockers cause anxiety,some dont agree.

    The root cause is your mental well being,

    Ive just seen a councillor for 10 weeks and i feel loads better,and im still taking the same dose of beta blocker

    Anxiety is something i will always have,get help and talk about the way you feel.

    Good luck

    I take 2.5 for slight irregular heart beat, I found best at night as can make you tired and a bit down, might be my imagination of course! I started having anxiety panic attacks don't know why, tried Bachs Rescue Remedy night and day drops not much difference but a bit. Told Dr on last INR test he prescribed Lorazapan 1/2 at night and 1/2 when anxious, not taken yet apart from at night sleep much better. Also gave me Sertralina after reading up on it I decided not to take as side effects were not good and I don't think I need it. I live in Spain and the language can be tricky! Try the Bachs rescue it's all natural and has excellent reviews. Good luck

      Hi barbspain...  i am supposed to take bisoprolol as well...but have been terrified to start it.  I have recently been diagnosed with arrythmia too... when the arrythmia is really irregular i get a slower heart rate...and bisoprolol lowers it even more right?  Did u have problems with lowering it too much?   I used Rescue Remedy for many years for anxiety as well.

      Hi there,

      I really don't know what my HR was before, I had a stroke put on bisoprolol because I told my Dr I was a little breathless when walking uphill! No other reason they thought my stroke could have been caused due to an irregular heart beat but it was never really diagnosed with that! I don't have high BP either it's all precautionary apparently!! I am sure your Dr knows what he is talking about try not to worry. If you take the pill in the evening if it makes you tired you will be going to bed so it won't matter. Good luck with it all🌞

      Thank you...  I'm trying to get my nerve up to take it... seems like so many here have had negative experiences with it. sad    I do have a blood pressure/ heart rate monitor...  so at least i can keep an eye on those things.  smile
