I’m the same also but have found that propanalol and lorazepam do help. I take two propanalol a day and lorazepam when acute attack

Hi Daffy,

I only notice my anxieties get worse in the afternoons, I have got a GP appointemnt booked, as I just vouched outline my case, and to let him judicially decide, whether he'll increase the dose, I personally wouldn't wish to be wearing my bands for anxieties all times on an afternoon basis, I should like to come away from that route, i suffer something chronic with anxieties depending on my topcis of the day, worse in the afternoons.


Best regards oh, and I take presently Pregabalin, twice a day. It's the 2nd one the following day, where I notice a big drop, come the afternoons.


Natalie.

I get a really high pulse rate that even when resting is about 100bpm and has gone as high as 165. Propanalol controls my heart rate and does not slow me down . But I would not drive with lorazepam as it relaxes your muscles and make me drowsy but it does calm you within 10 minutes . I’m only allowed 14 per month as it’s highly addictive

Yea because it's one of the benzos and can be very addictive
