A month ago my Dr prescribed me 10mg propranolol tablets for my anxiety to take as required. I was taking one each morning and that was working well, however in the last week or two i have been extra stressed and have been taking one each morning and night so 20mg all up each day. 2 days ago i was extremely anxious and took 4 over the course of the day and now im terrified im going to have withdrawals and have a heart attack. Since taking 4 i have only taken 2 about 12 hours apart and im hoping to cut back to 1 a day as i think more than 1 has affected me negatively. The last week i have woken up with a racing heart each night and the same thing in the morning and it terrifies me. The doctor said its due to the stress and said i have nothing wrong with me that is of concern. The last couple of days i have felt my heart beat very strongly in my chest and it makes me very anxious. Anyway, has anyone experienced anything similar? Im so scared im going to have a heart attack because i took 4 in one day and that my heart is under stress because of the fluctuations in dosage. My dr said that i can take up to 4 in a day if needed but the pharmacist said to try and keep it regular and the same dosage. Will I be ok cutting back to 1 a day after taking 4 a couple of days ago??
