Question re Propranolol or other Beta Blkr

I have been taking 10 mgs of propranolol before bed for a few months for anxiety issues. I have been noticing that my breathing feels different. Sort of like my nose gets stuffed and it's hard to breathe, or I feel not tightness but unusual feeling in my chest that could make my breathing feel off. It doesn't happen during exertion. I notice it more when I'm quiet and feeling my breathing. Is this an issue with Propranolol?

Re: Question re Propranolol or other Beta Blkr

I thought you were getting off it months ago? I think that was you anyway, either on here or the anxiety board. I'm on 40 mg twice a day and have never had any breathing issues Sure it's not all in your head and you thinking about not being able to breathe is making you feel like you can't? I have bad anxiety and i notice when i think about stuff like that it happens.

Re: Question re Propranolol or other Beta Blkr

Hi, actually it's not bad anxiety b/c my anxiety has decreased a lot. And it's not like I can't breath, it's like I notice my breathing has changed. It's so hard to explain. I am wondering if it's b/c I put on some weight like 15 lbs since October. I wanted off a few months ago, but never actually did anything about it.

You should ask your DR. Have you ever had any problems with Asthma? Fam

Tell your DR, but you're on a verrrrrrrry small amount. It's like you barely taking any....its strange...

Maybe you are allergic to it. Fam
