Propranolol question

Hi all

Hope your all well.

I was given propranolol to take for anxiety as and when needed. Iv had it in my bag for about 8 months but im to scared to take it. Silly being anxious about taking an anxiety med :(

Does anyone else take this and have any advice? Iv googled and read people saying its changed their lives and others saying it doesnt do anything.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Ali1983.

In general there is no set expectation that any drug will work the same way in different people because each body has a different chemistry.

I am interested to know what has happened in the last 8 months without taking it.

Did you feel better or worse without it?

Did you do something else to change/manage your anxious feelings?



I have not taken it so not sure if i would feel better or worse yet unfortunately.

I havent really done anything to manage it differently i hve just got through the anxious days as best as i can, some days better than others. Recently my anxiety is getting worse and feel i should give myself a break and a helping hand by taking propranolol but just curious on other peoples thoughts or experiences.

Thanks for your reply




I take inderal. I am not a fan of medicines either, they scare me. Inderal only makes me feel better.

When I am afraid to take a med, I take the smallest amount I can at first.

I love this drug .
