My gp has prescribed me beta blockers to overcome insomnia yet all the info I find seems to indicate they have the opposite effect. His reasoning being that as I described a fast anxious heartbeat being a symptom the beta blockers will reduce my adrenalin/heart rate helping me to relax. But like I say I keep reading things that contradict his advice.
Any thoughts or advice very welcome.
Generally they can work the opposite way I thought. If you are not sure, I am no GP you should discuss all wit your GP
If that is not possible go on the NHS CHOICES web page and check th drug under thier A to Z
Thanks Bob. Most of the advice on the Internet seems to contradict my doctor although in theory I can understand his logic.
Put your mind at rest, phone the surgery tomorrow, your GP will or should call back at your request and put your mind at rest
