I have given several speeches in my life with no fear until one day I had a panic attack come up and bite me. This took place in an auditorium setting. I have been overcome by anxiety thinking about this. However, I don't have problems in a classroom setting, tv interviews, radio interviews. More or less it is when I am the "expert" in a bigger setting. I have not taken propranolol for a speaking engagement before. Can anyone help ease the anxiety and let me know that it will work?
Propranolol is a blood pressure lowering medication that helps the physical symptoms of anxiety. It may be enough to keep you from having a panic attack. Just follow the doctor's instructions. And remember, a little anxiety before a speaking engagement is perfectly normal. At least, it is for me.
Delltech; This has been used for years for stage freight by all kinds of people and is very effective for most. And you don't have to take it all the time and don't worry about the blood pressure it does not drop it down enough to even worry about but you well just have to talk with your doctor about trying this.
