Propranolol / Quetiapine(Seroquel)

Hi,
I am relatively new here and I have introduced in the main forum. I suffer from panic attacks due to hyper vigilance related to "war ptsd" and I also suffer panic attacks related to health anxiety about my heart.

My GP/Psyc doc started me on propranolol about 2 months ago which has had little success and caused me more anxiety about my heart due to unpleasant side effects dizziness weakness fatigue and slow pulse 45/55 bpm under the influence of 80mg SR. I have started recently on a drug called quetiapine(seroquel) 250mg SR daily I have been on quetiapine before a few years back and it was very effective against depression and hyper vigilance anxiety however it makes my appetite go through the roof. I hope that it has some benefit on treating my health anxiety then I can come of the beta blocker. Has anybody had success or even tried quetiapine for this kind of anxiety?

Thanks C.
