Hey, I wrote this out last night but forgot to post it:
"I recently had a panic attack a few days ago and I had another one two nights ago. I went to the clinic yesterday and I've been prescribed with 40mg of propranolol (deralin) to be taken whenever I feel a panic attack coming on. Today I took it once (around 2 or 3 hours ago) and now I'm currently laying in bed with tinnitus, freezing hands, shivers, nausea, feeling faint and an awful anxious feeling coming from my gut. I'm not sure what to do right now or when it will pass. I've been like this for 45 minutes! I have dissolvable electrolyte tablets that I could drink but I'm not sure if I should after propranolol or if it would increase my blood pressure (which usually leads to awful panic attacks). Please help!!!"
I remained this way from around 6pm-9pm. I went to have a bath, which didn't do anything. I then made myself vomit from the nausea and that is when I started to feel better! I kept making myself vomit for a while until I felt sleepy and I went to sleep.
This morning, I felt the exact same as I did last night. Just a horrible, butterflies in the stomach feeling, ringing in my ears, nausea, crazy shivers and cold flushes with cold hands and feet. I don't know if this is a side effect or my anxiety (or both) or if I'm just getting sick from the whole thing. I'm not sure if I should take another propranolol now but my heart is starting to increase so I feel like I should.
I only had one at 5pm last night! I'm a 19 year old male and I was given 40mg tablets to take whenever I feel a panic attack coming on for a maximum of 4 times a day. I had no anxiety issues/physical issues before last week, so this is all new and frigtening. I feel like I'm in agony and it's awful. Please reply! (I might be over reacting)
