    Has anyone tried propanolol for anxiety? Is it effective?

    I usually get on well with lorazepam PRN, but my various docs are concerned about the addictiveness as I have been using it every day, and will not prescribe me any more - sensible I suppose. I have also been prescribed citalopram for the last 3-4 weeks, but I have not found it effective at all: in fact, I think things are even slightly worse.

    So one doc has suggested taking a propanolol 40mg every morning instead of lorazepam.

    Has anyone got any experience of this drug, good or bad?

    I'm taking it on an as needed basis.. I think it works great! Takes away the trembly and shaking feelings I get when I'm nervous. Great for presentations. Only thing it didn't help with was sweating. There is also very little side effects!

    Thanks for the reply. I took one this morning, and your comments pretty well reflect my experience so far. Not as trembly or shaky, but still sweaty. Also, does not really calm your mind down in the same way that lorazepam does. However, ongoing lorazepam does not seem to be an option.
