I would try it - I can see why you don't want to take the Seratonin, I don't like that genre of medications. My mother, for example, was on it and
slept the whole ten years she was - in my case, it made me develop foggy thinking.
The good thing about the Propranolol is that it has a short half-life, so it will leave your system naturally and can be taken as-needed, even if you
are supposed to be taking it 3 times a day or whatnot. While the S.S.R.I.'s have drastic withdrawal effects.
It is very interesting. I was having terrible panic attacks for a long time, also, for example, when fireworks went off on New Year's, I thought they
were gunshots until I got myself figured out. It is interesting. It reduces anxiety, but in an interesting manner...
I would recommend (talking to your doctor and
) trying it and then stopping it if you don't like it, or maybe just taking it as needed. Possibly
just trying a few doses at first to see what happens. It affects my social interactions - it turns out in a positive manner, but the change was what
was more worry-some for me at first.
It is similar to Xanex in that you can pop one of them and it can help with an acute episode, but it also has a decent half-life (of 4 hours) so
taking one three times a day can seem like it's a more long-acting med. Sometimes, though, I will stop it for a half day or so to clear it out of my
system. Luckily, it is one that is safe to take as needed.
Although if you have any structures or organizations or whatnot / stuff like that you maintain for comfort, which I do, it is a bit weird, those can
fall apart a bit (probably due to emotional attachments being separated from factual mechanisms).
It is interesting, though, it is a natural process, it doesn't feel the same as other medicines like the Seratonin ones where I can tell there is
something weird going on I'm not entirely in control of.
