      I see - 3 months on ven? You should be feeling better by now but again, Propranolol is mixing in and you can't be sure. The dosage of ven may need adjusting. Or indeed it may not be the right medicine for you if you are constantly exhausted. WHat does your doctor say through all this? Is he available for you to discuss? And are you taking any other kind of medication at all? Or alcohol?

      I was the same but please know you'll get through it. I'm afraid it is the combination of Ven and prop they don't mix well. Don't come off them but try dropping the dose slightly each week until you feel your on the right dosage. Also with Ven don't take them all at once but stage them throughout the day.

      I've also found taking multi vitamins with energy boost can help also playing on a Xbox or PlayStation helps.

      Thanks

    It's a very long time since i took propanalol with ven.  I did need it for a period of time but as the need decreased I bacame more and more like a zombie.  Alarms at various distances from the bed, my 76yr old mother phoning me to get me up and then when i did get up, the aches pains and heavy limbs were almost too much to take.  It did improve after i stopped the propanalol.  My kids do homework in my bed pretty often as I'm too tired to be sitting up any longer, as long as they're with me they seem OK.  I would avoid messing too much with the ven though, if you mess too much with your dosage you run the risk of withdrawal or drug resistance (I did that with prozac).  Peaks and troughs unfortunately, and babysteps with the meds.
