    Beta-blockers prevent, or significantly lessen the anxiety attack adrenaline surge which is often the most severe anxiety symptom and this can often be enough to regain control, but they have no direct effect on anxiety itself.

    Will have to ring the gp to see what else they can offer.
    I think that would be your best option given this has now persisted for about a week.

    The doc offered to up the dose of propranolol. Guess I'll have to put up with it and hope it goes away soon 😕

    Bummer. I was hoping you'd get at least a small dose of mirtazapine as a sedative, if not a BZD. The closest otc alternative is the antihistamine diphenhydramine found in in Nytol tablets and liquid, however, it may prove too sedating when combined with propranolol and the two may also lower blood pressure enough to trigger postural hypotension when getting up. But it could be more effective than propranolol on its own so... Might be worth getting your pharmacist's opinion.

    Pity. Unfortunately, there's not much else available otc. It is really going to be up to your GP if the anxiety continues. You need to press him as white-knuckling through anxiety is counter-productive.
