For Anxiety: "Propranolol seems to only slightly help with anxiety for me. Sometimes when I get REALLY stressed my blood pressure and pulse will get pretty high, I find propranolol more useful for that situation."

For Performance Anxiety: "This little pink power pill is incredible! For years I have avoided social situations or interviews due to the awful anxiety I feel when put on the spot to talk. I would just think of the feeling of panic spreading over me and want to run away. This tablet has changed my life. No more racing heartbeat or awful feeling of panic. So grateful to have this to use when needed most!"

For Performance Anxiety: "I've had a phobia of public speaking since age 16. Heart races, voice shakes, neck turns blotchy. I tried confronting my fear: did toastmasters and gave 40+ work presentations. But, the physical reaction never went away. I merely lived with it. Finally, my boss told me that I need to do something about my nerves during presentations (not a helpful thing to say to someone!). I realized that this is an automatic response and not something that my mind can control. I read about Proprananol online and went to the doctor to ask her thoughts. She told me that a lot of people take it, including those in high-power positions. By now, I've tried it 8 times -- every time I was calm and flawless, humorous even. I wish I had found this 15 years ago."

For Anxiety: "I took Propranolol for over a year, for Anxiety. Worked brilliantly! I've seen a lot of bad reviews here, saying it doesn't work and it annoys me because people clearly don't understand exactly what the Propranolol does and how it works... Propranolol does NOT take away Anxiety as in the psychological side to it, like feeling nervous. It is a medication that slows down the heart. So if you get fast heart/palpitations due to Anxiety, that is what it is used. It's not a benzo that will affect your mood, it just slows your heart down."

For Migraine Prevention: "Started taking 80 mg before bed about 8 months ago. It worked ok the first few months, with the exception of some weight gain. I went from having daily severe headaches and migraines to mild daily headaches and migraines about once every week or two. About two month ago, headaches came back full force and my neurologist decided to up the dose to 120 mg. Couldn't sleep at all, terrible nightmares, gained more weight, and had hand numbness. His suggestion was to take it during the day instead of at night. Terrible idea. Excessive drowsiness, nausea, and still nonstop severe headaches and migraines. Hands still going numb and no sleep. Hope to get off of this soon."

For Anxiety: "Dr. prescribed Propranolol 10mg twice a day for mild anxiety and stress/panicy feelings. Noticed a difference in hand shakiness, tight chested, short of breath and feelings of extreme stress, but my vision was badly effected and I literally could not read words that before hand I had no trouble in reading! Everything was blurred and very disconcerting. I stopped taking it after 2weeks as I wanted my sight back."

For Migraine Prevention: "I started taking Propranolol 4 months ago for Migraines primarily as well as high blood pressure. I am 5'1" and weigh 106lbs and have not experienced any weight gain. It bothers me that people say they gain weight from a pill. Unless that pill is increasing your appetite it just can't happen. Weight gain is natural science. What you put in opposed to what you expend. You can not be seditary and not gain weight. The migraines are gone as well as the blood pressure. All and all I think it is an excellent drug except for the fact my sex drive is not very good."

For Anxiety: "Hi everyone. My healthy professional prescribed me Propanolol 40mg dosage. I supposed to take it 3 times a day but I just take it whenever I need it. I founded it really useful with my symptoms such as very low mood, depression and anxiety. Although this med makes me feel so so tired after 22.00 when I take my last pill. I mean I can't even talk or do uni work. Next day I sleep like till 11, 12 which is quite bad. I actually can't even get out of my bed.... I only take this meds when I need it."

For Benign Essential Tremor: "I found that it did control my BP to an acceptable level but it did nothing for my anxiety or tremors. The tremors did stop after a round of amoxicillin antibiotics but have since returned with yet another infection."

For Performance Anxiety: "Wow, can I say? This drug is amazing! I had to deliver a 4 hour course with 9 people staring at me the whole time and I walked through the fire, I did it! Took a 5mg Valium 3 hours before because my anxiety was so acute I felt like I could vomit, then took Inderal 40 2 hours before the presentation, and I glided through. I wasn't scared nor afraid of what anyone thought of me and didn't mind they were looking at me. I was able to deliver the material with ease, and speak confidently without any anxiety symptoms. My voice and hands were not shakey and I was able to look everyone in the eye and speak with clarity. Had I not taken the Inderal, know the Valium wouldn't have been enough to pull me through. This Beta Blocker was a life saver!"

For Anxiety: "Hi all, I've suffered with anxiety all my life due to a turbulent childhood. In recent years I have gradually become a lot worse, to the point the I was self harming and I overdosed on prozac when I was nineteen. I'm in my late thirties now and it's reared it's ugly head again, it took over me and my life about two years ago. I began to dread going out, traffic stresses me as do people laughter makes me feel scared, it impacted my sleep and my job, which consequently I've had to give up; I simply wasn't coping. Recently I've been put on 80mg of propanalol and my word!! I feel so calm!, I'm so relieved! It's a brilliant medication!"

For Anxiety: "3 things I take it for, ADHD symptom relief, anxiety disorder and very high, dangerous blood pressure problems. I used to take 160mg ER, but my dose had been cut to 20mg IR twice a day, for various reasons and concerns. But I can tell you when your on a higher dose, the hunger issue is not an issue, you don't eat, I didn't. When they cut me to the smaller dose my hunger after meals was gargantuan still and I take Adderall too, which is a severe appetite suppressant itself. This stuff gave me my life back. It works for some and not for others. I couldn't live without it."

For Migraine Prevention: "Propranolol has been very effective for my migraines. Though I probably am on too low a dose at 60mg a day. As far as side effects, I have had none. And I have been on it for years and haven't gained one ounce."

For Performance Anxiety: "Have tried SSRI and therapy for SA and public speaking fears. So many events in my life have been spoiled by these issues. Propranolol fixed it once and for all. I always believed the problem originated in an inappropriate activation of fight or flight which this drug corrects. It is amazing."

For Performance Anxiety: "Some months on now and i still swear by these. I've a big meeting later today and tomorrow, I took my 10mg an hour or so ago and any residual fear (heart, vision, legs) is very much silenced. This will be my last update unless something changes in the effect so let me say this as many already have. If your anxiety has you fearing these tabs, start on a small dose. for many its enough anyway. If you are crippled by Anxiety, mainly the body reaction (face muscle tense, weakening legs, voice, vision etc..) these will very much numb those things. It will not effect your mind however you will probably find your new found confidence will chip away and your anxiety and lead to recovery. I now use less frequently in areas i once would. good luck."

Inderal (propranolol) for Migraine Prevention: "I'm a 61 year old man, I took Inderal LA 60mg for a year. For about 8 months it worked well, migraines would start and then go away after 5 to minutes. It caused me to gain 15 pounds even with dieting and exercise, it also causes ED but I was able to fix that with 5mg Cialis. In the last 2 months It has stopped preventing the migraines and causes problems with fatigue and at times shortness of breath, and the Cialis is no longer working (a big problem as far as I am concerned and my girlfriend too). It never stopped migraines caused by food triggers of which I have many."

For Performance Anxiety: "If your heart starts racing and you get out of breath at the sheer thought of public speaking, not to mention the act of public speaking itself; then this stuff is what you are looking for!!!!! People, this is the medication that we have been searching for (and as far as I'm concerned...didn't know existed). Thank you God!"

For Performance Anxiety: "I've avoided speaking in front of people my whole life due to extreme performance anxiety. I get all of the fight or flight symptoms - high heart rate, shaky legs & voice, dry mouth, sweat. I've had to leave in the middle of a presentation b4-most embarrasing moment in career. Was told to give a presentation in front of 60 peers at work 2 months ago. Instantly dreading it & wouldnt stop thinking about it. Went to my pcp month before and he prescribed propranolol. Took a 20mg pill 1.5 hours b4 and then chewed half pill 20 min b4 after saw standing room only! Slight drowsiness was my only side af. When called up, expected to freak out- my brain tried but my body didnt! Spoke clearly & confident, many compliments after! AMAZING, CAREER SAVING!"

For Performance Anxiety: "I had my first experience with this today. Took 20mg 2.5 hours before and 20mg 1/2 hr before. I weight about 130lbs. I have avoided all occasions where I had to speak in the past, it's inavoidable at this point in my career. I would wish for awful things to happen so I wouldn't have to speak....not healthy. Results: I can't believe how I handled it today-no anxiety. Zero signs. I felt on top of the world after. Tomorrow is the big one, please please let it go as well!"

For Migraine Prevention: "I never had "headache" in my life until high school, when I had my first migraine. Beyond the pain, it was completely debilitating; I lost my equilibrium, I was vomiting, had extreme light and sound sensitivity. After nearly a decade of doctor visits, food/beverage intake tracking, blood tests, etc. without finding an answer, I was finally referred to a neurologist. I had been prescribed Imitrex (had just become available in pill form), but it was never in my system long enough to work for me. At this point, I was having approx. 3 migraines per week, some lasted 1 day, others lasted 3. I was prescribed propranolol 60mg daily for 6 months. I rarely have migraines anymore (only 1-3 per year)."
