Best of luck with the Propranolol, Tricia. Other members have reported heart rate improvement with this medicine; you can type "propranolol" in the search box and see what comes up. Anxiety has a life of its own and will fire away even if there is no actual cause for alarm, which makes starting new meds difficult, I know. Wishing you calmness and serenity!

thank you i have had anxiety so long it just gets harder an harder in time hope this works an thanx need all the serenity i can get an clamness <3

My neuro has had me on propranolol for about 6 years now. His original reason for prescribing it had nothing to do with blood pressure, heart rate or anything of the type, but based on what he has told me, propranolol works to help the way keppra functions in the prevention of seizures. Coincidentally, I have dealt with high blood pressure in the past, so I guess taking propranolol is sort of a "two birds with one stone" thing for me.

Just to give you a heads-up... Propranolol will wear you out. For example, when I frst started taking it, I would run out of breath after walking up a single flight of stairs, or sometimes feel like I was going to pass out if I did anything that would normally cause my heart rate to increase, so things like cardio exersize were pretty much out of the question. It took quite some time for my body to get used to it, but now I can walk up several flights of stairs without feeling light-headed... Maybe a little out of breath, but not dizzy.

Don't be afraid of the reaction, just be aware that it is something that you might experience.
