I feel anxious and my heart rate is still fast. I have been on metoprolol for 4 days. I feel like i need anxiety medicine instead of metoprolol. I have a pain in my chest and my heart does a double beat more often now than when i wasnt taking metoprolol. Im so confused.
I think a beta blocker can help with a mild case of anxiety, but if your like me and I too take a beta blocker and at night I get panic attacks and it goes to 108 to 115. My blood pressure also goes high as well. I had to retrain my brain with nighttime routines and meds like melatonin and anxiety tea. They seem to help some. I do a lot of deep breathing exercises, they really do bring down my heart rate a lot. Try it, got nothing to loose.
