    propranolo????? what is it?

    after a few post i was recamended i return to my doctor to combate some new symtoms. these symtoms are involentry muscal movements and general continual anxiety. iv been on citalprom for a few months and its help some things but not all.

    what a waste of time with my doctor..
    i explaned my new symtoms, the doctor never look up from his pc and had already printed me out a perscripion for a new drug to take with citalopram before i had evan finished.
    when he handed it to me i said i wasent keen to be taken more drugs. in fact i want to get off citalpram to because i dont want to take drugs for anxiety for the rest of my life.

    this was ignored and i was sent on my way. i got the new perscripion called PROPRANOLOL 40 MG TWICE A DAY.

    i have taken them the last few days and iv been feeling awful, very dizzy and keep getting a rush of blood to the head.

    does anyone know what this drug is for? PS IT HASENT STOPPED MY involenty movments!!!

    Its a beta blocker, for high blood pressure, and helps some physical signs of anxiety, such as rapid heart rate.

    The beta Blocker could help alot...
    May I ask how many mg of citalprom you are taking?

    I'm on a beta blocker with my zoloft, and it has helped me tremendously.

    Ask your doctor to up your dose of Citolpram ..20 mg is typically for depression and 40mg is for anxiety and 80mg for OCD..I have to take 60mg to feel right...so I'm thinking your dose should be higher.

    Re: propranolo????? what is it?

    thank you again for your replys....
    im going to have a think about where to go from here. im sick of this anxiety, im sick of tablets, i dont understand why i feel like this.
    like i said in my orginal post i dont want to take drugs forever to control this. the thought of uping my dosage to 40mg doesent sit well with me to be honist.
    iv done canceling what led to a dead end. no trigger was found for my anxiety and panic attacks. i may come off the 20mg and see how i get on, its not doing much at the moment. i feel like im farting in a spacesuit with all the meds.
