Propranolol for anxiety

Anyone used this or another beta blocker for anxiety? Anything to report back? And is it easy enough to get in scrip from doctors?

They all have side effects that affect different people differently. In my experience from seeing family members on these drugs is when you want to come off them it's often very difficult.

It worked well for me. I was put on a repeat prescription but stopped taking it in the end so it got stopped

I was put on 20mg Propanolol a day for anxiety and it worked great, I was alot relaxed and stopped having panic attacks at night.

I didn't take them long term but the doctor said it was ok too as it has no effect on the brain, I just took them long enough for me to get things back in order and on the right track and I simply forgot all about them.

As far as side effects I had none but because the dose was so low maybe that's why. I know Propanolol is also prescribed to people who regularly suffer migraines.

It’s ok but depends on what’s really wrong with you. Used to take them before exams and sports events because I got so wound up haha.

Anxiety mate, I’ve always suffered from it to some degree but I’ve found it’s just a tad heightened while running AAS, have been on mirtazapine up until now which was effective at first but it’s not really having the same effect anymore

When I say anxiety I mean specifically worrying a lot, over thinking etc

My cousin is on mirtazapine combined with venlafaxine and she says it's made a big difference to her anxiety. It's actually often referred to as California rocket fuel. However, if you take these drugs long term coming off them can be really tough. The main problem seems to be doctors don't appear to fully understand the importance of tapering off these drugs slowly. The drug companies often say patients can taper off them within a month but I have seen people really struggle coming off them that fast.

A guy who was on my ward had been on venaflaxine for years said over his 25 years of anxiety and depression and trying multiple types of different meds this was the only one that had worked for him, he called it his miracle pill
Anyway the Doctors plugged it for whatever reason and he literally sobbed for 7 days and begged for it to be readministred

To the OP

Propanonol for anxiety is great, slows your heartbeat down Which in turn seems to control adrenaline a lot better, people have been known to take it for driving tests and exams etc it’s good for a short term fix and isn’t dangerous or addictive

Just tell your doctor you know it’s wrong but you tried somebody else’s medication and it seemed to really help you

For me mirtazpine didn’t do 5hit for anxiety and I’ve gone from 15mg-60mg and bck down it just stabilised my mood at times that was about it, it helps a lot with sleep too but if you stop taking it and the commence it again in the future it won’t have that same benefit anymore, not sure why

Hope this helps mate

May I suggest you see a shrink and take up Yoga as well. In my own experience chemicals can be detrimental to your long term outlook. Your obviously a big lad so well used to running the gear but I think a shrink would be beneficial for when you come off etc and the shrinkage starts as Im sure will make your aniexty worse. 
 
But yes back to your point it does work but like anything eventually loses it potency and the only way I found to deal with my anxiety was to talk to someone and use it to harness good energy.

I used propranolol for anxiety for a few years ago. It can be taken consistently (every day) or on a 'as and when' basis.
 
I went with the 'as and when' as I didn't want to risk get hooked on them, and as you know anxiety etc is not always there but can come out of nowhere. The main thing I noticed was that it brings your heart rate down slightly, which is what can calm you down. It works, but for me it wasn't a miracle drug, handy to have though. Doctors give out anti-depressants and the likes easily these days so it shouldn't be too hard to get some if you speak to your doctor about it. Just don't go overboard with them.

Triple G that’s great help mate actually thank you

Rasp, I do actually do yoga and I’ve noticed it’s tremendous for your mind, after dismissing it for years funnily, I have tried the talking route (CBT) and i didn’t find it very effective tbh, if anything it made me worse in some ways dredging up old sh*t that id forgot about for a reason lol

Homer - thanks for the info too, I’m hoping to use it on that sort of when needed basis as you say, it comes and goes

Update - I got some later that day at the doctor, and it’s helping. Massively. Feel ‘normal’ for the first time in a long time.

How does this AAS induced anxiety manifest itself? Is it physical symptoms or more thought anxiety?

It’s a double edged knife in my experience, before I started running test I had pretty bad anxiety, I found test alone helped, but running other compounds like dbol which I am atm, it can worsen it

It’s mainly mental / mind affected anxiety for me, although my heart rate can sky rocket at times if something worsens my state, so that can count as physical I guess

Usually just over worry about situations and can’t eliminate the routine though. Doesn’t sound a big deal but sometimes it just gets over powering

Training helps, a lot. Generally train every day just to clear my head

Interesting. Most guys I know have a lot of physical sensations that causes anxiety when on AAS.

I'm a fan of Stoicism for helping to control anxiety. It's worth looking into. http://www.njlifehacks.co...n-10-stoic-principles/

prop did nothing for my anxiety but i could feel it really slopped my hear rate down and the intensity of the beat , felt like the opposite of taking a t5 .
 
Valium on the other hand just switches anxiety of and is very effective, i can see why its so addictive , AAS dont seem to have any effect on my anxiety , but genuine real life problems do , I just try and be displined with them and keep thm to once per week , other than that Kratom works very well for anxiety also !

Propanolol is a Beta 2 receptor blocker (primarily) and antagonises nor-adrenaline. It is pretty much the opposite effect as drugs like clenbuterol and ephedrine, which are beta receptor agonists.
 
Mainly used medically to slow the heart rate & lower blood pressure.
 
Using propanolol is likely to have a negative effect on cardiac 'performance' so cardio will feel harder and attaining your normal intensity level will be difficult, as will be attaining maximal heart rate

It's very popular in America from what I've read, Kratom.

They’re about to ban it. Chris Bell who made Bigger, Faster, Stronger is campaigning to stop it being banned and has made a doc about it. He uses it asa means to control his drug addictions. I thought it was banned here already.

I think it was covered in the ban everything other than whats on an approved list "legal high" ban , its still readily available though and I will continue to use it . Its my my codeine use down to zero , works well for anxiety, has painkilling effects and makes the days much more enjoyable with very little withdrawal symptoms, no idea why they would want to ban this stuff, end of the day its a naturally grown plant and people chew the leaves , it exists in nature and is there to be used. I beleive it got banned in Thialand because it destroyed the opium market.
 
The only downside for me is the price and try and bust your nut on kratom and its very hard , so you can go for hours like a stallion , good and bad in some ways , bird thinks she doesnt turn me on , but she's squirting all over the room , need a heavy heavy bj with a bit of prostate massaging going on to get over the edge.
