I'm a 44-year old male with Anxiety Disorder. My doctor started me on blood pressure medications about 7 months ago when my anxiety was diagnosed (I had some pretty high readings while I was having some panic attacks). I take 50 mg of Metoprolol twice a day and a 5/10 mg Lotrel once a day. My doctor wants me to increase to a 5/20 mg Lotrel (higher than normal readings at his office). I take a very low dose of Clonazepam, which controls my anxiety very well, and I've lost more than 20 pounds and I run 2-4 miles a day. Lately, most days my blood pressure is about 130-135/75-85. I feel great, but I'm wondering about the switch to the higher dose of Lotrel. Any thoughts? Anyone taking a similar combination? I'm hoping to get away from ALL the medications eventually.
