    How long does propranolol take to work

    Started propranolol today as my pulse was racing due to anxiety already my pulse has slowed down does it work that quick. Has it helped anyone else with panic anxiety?

    I only started mine yesterday. Seems to be taking away the physical anxiety, but not the mental.

    BUT...

    Because i'm not shaking, sweating, feeling like my chest is going to explode, I can generally focus more on taking my mind off it.

    Good things so far

    Re: How long does propranolol take to work

    I am certainly able to be a bit more focussed and a bit more accepting and rational towards my fears (what i felt was driving my anxiety)..

    So yeah.. I would say it's working to an extent.. I'm not expecting miracles from them and i'm only on 40mg once a day while I adjust to my increase in SSRI, but it's all good so far.

    Apart from day 1... was like getting hit with a wall of "sleep" and then when I went to bed, couldn't sleep... luckily I had a super drowsy anti-hystamine to hand.

    For the first time in a while today though I didn't wake up before my alarm went off, which is 100% progress

    They worked within 20 minutes for me and lasted 4-5 hours each time. They calmed my pulse and helped me to be more rational and less jittery and scared all the time.

    I think they are a brilliant tablet because they work so quickly, I think once they have helped the physical symptoms your mind rests a bit easier anyway, I was going through major panic the other week, thought I was going to die but Propranolol worked for me, i'm allowed to take upto 80mg a day but i'm glad to say i've been fine for a good two weeks and not had to take any Hope you feeling better soon too Anx Mum x

    Re: How long does propranolol take to work

    Hi - I am new to this forum.

    I have never tried Propranolol as i don't get racing heartbeat etc. i simply get nausea and feeling like I will vomit...although I don't vomit but every single time I think this will be the time.

    Anyway, if this blocks the adrenaline will it actually help with this nausea ?

    Any comments are greatly appreciated.
