Hi basically long story short I'm on propanolol 10mg twice a day for what my doctor says is anxiety although I don't believe him I still think it's my heart but after a long few months I'm slowly starting to believe it is anxiety anyway, iv been feeling a lot better than what I usually am still have bad days and still have chest pains constantly but iv decided I want to come of propanolol and deal with it on my own, now iv been taking propanolol since January twice a day and I went to see my gp a week ago and asked him how I can come off them he told me one day take one so 10mg once a day and next day 20mg so one in morning and one at night as I usually was and keep doing that alternativly everyday so one a day and then two a day then one a day and so on for 20 days and on the 20th day I can stop but for some reason when I left the surgery something in my mind is telling me something bad is gunna happen I don't get how my body can come of tablets by switching the dosage every day it's freaking me out because I also read the side effects of stopping them and it says heart attack or death!! I always think that anyway so surely it's gunna happen!! Please can someone reassure me that this is the correct way of coming of them I know I should be listening to my doctor I can't help but think this isn't the correct way of coming of them I'm so scared something bad is gunna happen to me (heart attack etc, iv already had 8 ecgs and 1 24 hour ecg, 2 x rays and my hearts apparently fine) I'm not convinced I suppose that's the anxiety part playing on my mind but I just want some advice on someone who has also come of them like this I'm female 22 and I just feel like my body or heart is gunna get used to one dose one day and another dose the next I just don't feel like it's right sorry for the long post but would really like some advice thanks in advance laura
