Problem is I am too scared to take them as I have read about the side effects which is making me more anxious. What do i do?
It is common to have anxiety over taking new meds. It is the nature of the beast when you have anxiety. You can try the propranolol to see if it will help your anxiety. You can always stop it if you feel the side effects if any will be too much for you. Be sure to tell your doctor about any concerns you have. You can google 'propranolol reviews for anxiety' and read what others have said and experienced.
Hope you find something to help your anxiety soon.
If your doctor has prescribed you a medication, it is because you could possibly improve your quality of life by taking it. Once you start taking it, look for signs that it's helping you as you get it into your system. Some medications take longer than others to start working.
Sometimes the amount of information on the internet can be a negative for people who are hypochondriac or get so scared they don't follow what your doctor has deemed might help you.
I understand you being hesitant taking something new. Know that most of the time side effects are not bad enough to stop a medication. If you do experience anything that concerns you, just let your doctor know.
Wishing you the best and hope it does end up helping you feel better! If not, there's other ones that might be a better fit for you! Xx
