Other conditions:   None
Other drugs taken:   None
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   Stopped the body's reaction to anxiety attacks
Side effects:   Sometimes a mild dizzyness. Side effects was not bad for me
Comments:   With propranolol the body stops reacting to the surge of adrenalin that attacks you when you get very anxious. The hands doenst shake, the legs doesnt shake, the heart doesn't pound and so on. Thus for me, it proved effective in breaking the vicious cycle where thougts start a bodily panic reaction which again fuels the thougts and so on.

Side effects:   Mild Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   rapid heart rate
Dosage & duration:   20mg taken 2x a day for the period of 5 weeks
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   I have suffered of rapid heart rate for sometime because of my thyroid problem. I was given this medicine to get my heart rate controlled. First few weeks the medicine did not seem to work for me but my doctor increased the dosage to 20mg twice a day, then that was the time I started to feel my heart rate slow down. The medicine is definitely effective but I guess the effect of it depends on the individual as it requres a certain dosage for it to work effectively.
Side effects:   I started feeling dizzy whenever I get up from sitting position to standing. I have informed my doctor about this and I was informed that this is a possible side effect of the drug.
Comments:   Details as above.
