Good Morning. Beta Blockers are used for some people especially if you have anticipatory anxiety. I actual take one, Inderal. Buspar is a med I am trying right now but I think My dose could be a bit lower. It is scary to be on meds and most of us would love to not use meds.
I would suggest the next visit to your Doctors, you discuss the meds you are taking including any side effects, reason for med and make an informed choice as whether you want to take the medication.

Thanks so much for your advice. I started my betablocker today at 11 a.m. So far so good. I've been in hyper mode and even after a few hours of med I don't feel so hyper. I know it's to soon to really tell it's effects. I haven't taken any buspar for a few weeks and will wait to see how the beta blocker works before I decide wether or not I will try to take it again. I promised my Mom and Dr. I will check back in with the Dr. either by phone or person to let him know how I'm doing. Thanks so much for you kindness.
Have a blessed day. I'm smiling today, which is the first time in long time.
