Beta blocker (Propanolol)

Hi, I'm new here so sorry if I am asking a stupid question.  I have suffered from anxiety for years but have only just started getting help for it.  I have been referred for cognitive behavioural therapy and have been given beta blockers to help me get through situations that make me anxious. I have taken them a couple of times now, but both times I have said and done things that are out of character for me.  I have gotten quite angry with people or have been really open and revealed things to people that I normally wouldn't.  Is this the beta

Suggested Questions And Answer :


Beta blocker (Propanolol)

Some beta blockers can cause unwanted personality changes but it was usually depression which did happen to me at higher doses of Atenolol and why I couldn't take Inderal but I tended to believe that was connected with the fact that they were lowering blood pressure which can make a person feel depressed. Either way speak to your psychiatrist about it and they can inform you what you should do and what are other options.

What is the best medication for anxiety-induced elevated high blood pressure for a young man?

Anxiety doesn't necessarily cause high blood pressure.  I've suffered from anxiety for years, but never high blood pressure.  So don't assume the anxiety is causing this.  If you want to try something natural, Herb Pharm makes a compound called Linden Mistletoe compound that is very good at lowering blood pressure.  That along with dietary changes and exercise might do the trick without adding still another med to the cabinet you're forming.

asthma and beta blockers

Unfortunately, there really is no easy answer to your question.  There are some asthmatics that are able to tolerate beta blockers, while there are others that are not.  I am a severe-persistent asthmatic, and I take a cardio-selective beta blocker called Toprol XL.  Though I was not able to tolerate another cardio-selective beta blocker called Atenolol.  Other asthma patients may have similar, or opposite experiences.  Still others may have no negative responses at all to beta blockers, or be entirely intolerant of them.  It really depends on the patient. If you do need a beta blocker to control your tachycardia, I'd recommend asking about a cardio-selective beta blocker.  These are somewhat less likely to trigger asthma symptoms.  Also, you may want to set up an appointment with your Pulmonary Specialist to be certain he/she is happy with the level of control you have over your asthma symptoms.

tachycardia probs

I have exactly the same thing happening with my heart rate.  When I am sitting, it is normal, between 70-90 but as soon as I stand up and move around it shoots up into the 120-140s and then when I sit down it immediately drops back to normal????  I am worried and scared but my cardiologist says that it is due to anxiety.  I dont understand this because it happens all day every day and has been doing this for about a month now.  If you have gotten any other information from your doctor could you please share it with me.  Thanks   : )

Beta Blocker

I have had unfortunate experiences with beta blockers... they actually may my heart beats and skips, flip flops etx WORSE...my doctor put me on a calcium channel blocker and that worked wonderfully.  I know when one takes an SSRI containing norepinephrine agent it can make the anxiety worsen...such as Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil etc...I take Lexapro and that seems to be the only one that works for me regarding additional anxiety.

beta blockers

Welcome!  WHICH beta blocker your doctor puts you on will depend on a number of factors, the diagnosis leading to the med, including any concurrent issues (blood pressure issues, other meds, etc).  There is no ONE bb that is specifically for anxiety.  While they all have a slightly different mechanism of action, they should all serve to help reduce anxiety while treating the initial symptoms/condition it was Rxd for. Perhaps talk with your doc about your symptoms, and just ask if there is a different med that would be appropriate for YOU to take that would possibly help more with the anxiety symptoms?  That would really be your best bet!  Let us know how you're doing!

beta blockers for anxiety

Beta Blockers are mainly used to reduce blood pressure by slowing down your heart rate. If you have low blood pressure your doctor probably won't think it's a good idea to prescribe a beta blocker. Have you checked with your doctor ?

Bystolic for Anxiety

Medication definitely affects us all in different ways, but there are side effects to any medication that we take.  The question that I ask myself is do the benefits I get from something outweigh negatives?  If they do, I tend to stay on it.  However, if you are not comfortable with it there are different classes of medicaitons that are prescribed specifically for anxiety.  Also, we are already nervous and can tend to focus on the potential side effects much more intently, in my experience with anxiety.  Keep us posted!
