i already made this post, but then i realised i'm from the UK and meds are marketed under different names over here. So is anyone on Inderal (USA) or Propranolol (UK) for anxiety? It's the first medication they've gave me and apparently it's a beta blocker whatever that means, just kind of slowling my body down to reduce panic attacks i suppose? My doctor says i am on the lowest dose (40mg once a day) but i can go as high as three a day or sumthing like that, but only at her say so. I took my first today and i can't say it has made much difference, i took the pill about 5 hours ago and i have had one small but quite bad panic attack already, although i suppose it did go away quite quickly, but i still have a weirdness in my stomache all the time. Urgh i dunno what to think, i guess i'm expecting too much too soon when really i know a pill can only do so much, and that I have to change the way i think. Is anyone else using this drug? I would love to hear someone elses experiences on it? I'm really hoping this works otherwise it will be anti-depressants which seem so extreme. haha oh and look at me now getting anxcious about it. Don't you just adore anxiety disorders.
thanks for reading.
