I just started taking propranolol for blood pressure. As for anxiety I am not sure, but I know it helps my blood pressure problem.

they prescribe it in doses of up to 400 mg for blood pressure patients and myself take only twenty mg doses three times daily for stage fright

Yes but 20mgs is a very low dosage I take 3 x80mgs a day.

I have Adult ADHD, Anxiety, and Panic Attacks. I wonder if Proponolol would lessen the side effects vs: Lorazapam 1mg X 3 daily ?

20 is very low, "the bottom floor" of you will of entry points into the drugs affect on the patient. But with blood pressures (anxiety levels attributing) ranging from (on a more basic scale) 1-10 an 8 or a 9 would be taking around 400 mg for the bloodpressure. Meanwhile, someone who has ptsd or depression compounded by anxiety that interferes with social day-to-day interactions, lower doses are usually the recommended amount of around 20 mg or 40 mg (depending on the case as usual)

From what I just read about it on WebMD it's used primarily for heart irregularities, or after a heart attack, but I couldn't see where it mentioned anything about anxiety, but many drugs have many uses and I'm sure your doctor knows what he's doing. About the mg. you're taking I would think it would help, but I really don't know. Sorry

I have had a couple of mild heart attacks and strokes so I can see why my doctor has me on propranolol.
