Propranolol making me feel terrible
Hello all so I have a few questions in regards to propranolol. I have been taking propranolol 3x a week for 4 years at 20mg for each morning I go to work. I take it for social anxiety and panic attacks that I would have without them in the mornings I go to work and have meetings. At first it did wonders for me and the only side effects were my concentration was a bit down but I was relaxed and in no way anxious. As of the last two months the drug has really been wearing me down and I have been having really bad side effects such as shortness of breath, my body is tense, I feel like I’m about to cry and I can’t concentrate on a single thing and I am in no way relaxed as I was before. Honestly I am way more anxious on them but I don’t have a panic attack or go red in the face but just feel like a zombie on them now. I went to the doctor about this and I was persistent about changing to something else but all they said was it’s the safest drug out of them all and the best way to approach it was to lower down to 10mg that has done nothing and the side effects are at the same level of intensity. On some days the side effects won’t be that bad maybe 10% of the time but the other 90% I feel like the whole world is collapsing on me. Has anyone experienced this? I have tried many ways in taking it and can’t find a way to lessen the side effects or know how. I.e taking before breakfast , taking after breakfast none makes a difference. Is it possible taking it as soon as I wake up isn’t good for me? Also isn’t the shortness of breath symptom something to worry about ?
