I've recently been prescribed 80mg of propranolol for my anxiety/panic disorder to try reduce the amount of attacks I'm having per day. I've been taking it for about a week now and although my attacks have lowered significantly I'm noticing some horrible side effects which are making me panic so much. due to my panic disorder I get scared I'm dying over just about anything!! It's really annoying. I'm looking for some reassurance from others who have taken this. Do the side effects go away?
Here is what I have been experiencing -
Blurry vision or colour spots
Feeling of falling backwards
Numb emotionless feeling
Extreme tiredness particularly after I've first taken it
Choking sensation in throat
Could this be all the things I'm feeling from an anxiety attack but just not having one due to the medicine? Finally, with my panic disorder I've developed a fear of taking tablets (stupid I know) and I feel like every time I take my setraline or propranolol or a simple painkiller it sends me spiraling into a full blown anxiety attack where it feels like I'm having a heart attack. Any advice on how to stop this? I'm desperate I'm just existing and not living anymore this has ruined my life.
