Yes Beffry, I think I may try them. As I said, my Dr said I could try them for my hole in heart/irregular heat rate. However, I was trying to go without meds.
Now though, the anxiety is too much fo rme to take. I have so many panic attacks now and it horrid. The anxiety is awful.
How long did it take for you to feel the effetc of the betablocker? How long til it help with your anxiety? xx

That was 8 years ago. I don't really remember. I know it could not have been long though. I know that I suffered for weeks though...because back then I took nothing. I guess to be safe I would say it took a week to get better with the Atenolol(beta) I also started Xanax and Imempramine. The beta slowed down my heartrate overnight though. Only becuase of the Beta blockers I can go on from day to day, thats for sure.
Another thing Vikky, you say the anxiety is so much to take right now...that must mean that your heartrate is always up....right?
I say take the beta blocker...especially since you have a hole in your heart that causes irregular heartbeat. Think about it, the hole in your heart causing the irregular heartbeat is probably what is REALLY causing your anxiety. The irregular heartbeat makes you think you are going to die of a heart attack right? That makes you scared, so it gives you constant anxiety.
The same thing goes for me, I am scared to death of having a heart attack because of my palputations. I then have a panic attack thinking about it.
You say that you coundlt handle it well - i expect that some poeple cant handle all pills well. What bad reaction did you get to the betablockers? (ie, how could I feel if I dont handle them well either ?)
Welcome to Healing Well and the A & P forum. We have a thread called "let's get to know everyone better" Perhaps you would like to use it to share a bit about yourself if you are comfortable doing that.
I use Inderal for the hand tremor which helps but I do not have the BDT as severely as the member posted above.
Again Welcome to a warm and wonderful site.
Are you my twin...........I used to go out more too, but since I took early retirement due to Anxiety and Depression, I often hide out at home. I just don't have the iniative and I blame some of that on the meds.
I am meeting with my Pdoc next week again as I hate all the meds even thow I know I need to take them.
You will find lots of friends here and my advice to you is get out and boogey.
