Beta blockers vs benzos for anxiety/hypochondria?

I have used ativan but it depresses me too much. My cardio doc told me to try beta blockers to calm anxiety/heart palps that I get making me feel anxious. I am healthy male of 50 yo. But I have problems w/ anxiety. I really have anxiety/OCD/hypochondria/worry of heart health, thus I can't relax w/out either benzo's/alcohol or maybe beta blockers?
