"This pills really works!. I had a presentation yesterday and I took 3 20mg pills (60mg in total) 2 hours before my presentation and I was nerves before presenting and nerves seconds before I was to speak, but 4 seconds into my speech I didn't feel the nerves at all! I was so surprised! Please if you have fear of doing speeches take this pill. Also practice your speech! Practice also helps! Good luck!"

Inderal (propranolol): "Awesome for controlling anxiety in the mind and letting you think clearly but I still feel the anxiety in my nerves but better alternative than benzodiazepines. Another con is it interrupts with exercise you can't sweat or get your heart rate up so if your going to exercise time the pill intake hours before."

"After trying everything under the sun - speaking classes, herbal, homeopathic, medicines, etc. Wasting time and thousands of dollars along the way, I found the miracle drug. Voila no more blushing, quivering, shaking, trembling voice. If you experience any of these symptoms when giving an intro or speaking to a group, its the end of your misery. If it worked for a speaking disaster like me, it will work for anyone. Thank you Sir James Black for your invention. You gave me a new life."

"I had multiple presentations every day this week. I get anxiety even thinking about it. As embarrassing as this sounds being a 46 year old female, when talking in front of a group I feel like I'm going to pass out, I get dizzy, my heart trembles, my voice crackles and I sweat. I can't even finish. I was desperate for help since this would affect my career if I didn't do it. I read about this medication and begged my doctor to prescribe it to me.I took it the day before 20 mgs to see how it affected me and didn't tell much of a difference. The next day I had my first presentation. I took 20 mgs one hour before and this by far was a miracle pill for me. I was a little nervous still but it didn't even phase me. No side effects for me."

SRP - A miracle pill! (taken for less than 1 month) August 18, 2016

"I have always been fearful of public presentation and had a lot of nervous symptoms but it was manageable and I was on an antidepressant on and off. It wasn't until I got into the medical field that I started shaking in my class when I had to do blood draws in front of the entire class and my reaction really surprised me. My PCP thankfully rx'd me propanolol 10 mg which I took before blood draws and presentations and it completely took away shaking/blushing/lump in throat. Now I'm working in the medical field and I have to take everyday because my work is fast pased and I'm not sure when an anxiety reaction will show up. I have to use it when training new people and when someone is teaching me a new task."

"I've had terrible anxiety with regard to public speaking. Heart races,out of breath, voice quivering terribly. I was asked to be best man at my friends wedding and propanolol completely erased all the symptoms. I had the most intense fear standing up ready to deliver my speech.I ended up taking 5x10mg tablets. 10mg at 2pm, 20 at 3, 10 at 3:30 and a final 10mg at 4. Speech was at 5. If youre reading this, relax, *you are going to be okay*. Propranolol will crush all these symptoms. The only possible error you can make is taking too low a dose, too late on. Take early and top-up, if needed. Consult with a doctor for dosage, but aim on the higher side to be rock-solid sure of its efficacy if the event is extremely terrifying."

"I was prescribed this by my doctor to take to calm me down for a job interview. I tested it today for a mock interview at university and it is amazingly effect. I usually suffer from an increased heart rate, clammy hands, shakey voice and body and a nervous red rash that spreads across my face and chest. I was so calm after taking 20 mg an hour before the mock interview and one 10 mg fifteen minutes before. My body remained completely calm like it would if I was just watching television at home. Still some nervous thoughts but because my body was relaxed I was able to stay in control and interview well. Still a bit of a nervous flush but no where near as bad as unmedicated. Can't wait to see how this holds up for the actual interview."

"It's amazing. Works better than Xanax or other anxiety because its situational and you only take it when you need it and it doesn't put you to sleep. It's also amazing for those days you want to go to the pool and not obsess over anxiety of swimsuits in public. A life changer."

"Excellent Medicine, I had a presentation which i always feared to take and used to avoid it, This time it was mandatory. i researched a lot on the net and found lot of good reviews about proprapronol - Inderal. Doc prescribed 40 mg. Although taking medicines is not good always, but very rarely when there is a presentation it should be ok. I was skeptical though about working. Had one 40 Mg dose 2 hours before, it took 2 hours to start working. In the meeting, i was as usual feeling tense before my turn. till i started the presentation i was feeling tense as soon as i started, donno what happened, but i spoke very fluent. Although i was prepared but still the fluency showed up and it was really a good feeling, This really really worked today"

"I was asked a few months ago to give a best man speech in front of 800 people at my best friends wedding. I was super stressed for the months leading up to the event and went to my doctor to ask for a prescription. He prescribed 1-4 20gm pills 1-2 hours before speaking. The wedding was last night and due to the chaos I didn't know when my speech would be. I ended up taking one 20mg pill about 4 hours before my speech, a second 20mg pill about 2.5 hours before my speech and chewing half a pill about 20 min before my speech. I am amazed at how effective this medicine is, I was calm through the entire speech with no racing heart or trembling voice. My only recommendation is to take it with food otherwise it may cause upset stomach."

"Public speaking has been a huge issue for me for years. Even introducing myself was an experience that I would dread for weeks out of I knew I had to do it. I've always thought that one day I would adjust and get over it, but I never did. I would lose my breath, forget what I needed to say, sweat, heart rate would sky rocket, etc. my doctor prescribed me this yesterday. I had to speak today, so I tried it for the first time. I still felt somewhat nervous when I was just about to get up, but when I did i found I was able to get a sentence out because my breath was taken from me. I was able to recall the information I needed. I feel like I'm going to be able to as successful as I should be now that I've defeated what has become my worse enemy"

"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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!"

"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!"

"Propranolol is a life saver. I always had a fear of public speaking and have gone to great lengths to avoid every occasion to speak to a group. I have stammered in the past wherever I have mustered up the courage to speak to a group, this is despite a lot of preparation. A couple of weeks ago I was to make a 1 hour presentation to a group of overseas customers, I took a dose of 10mg two hours before my presentation and 2X10mg an hour before. I was quite surprised at the way I was able to handle the presentation, very confident, no stage fright, no performance anxiety. Many in the audience complimented me after my presentation, little did they know of my past struggle with speaking in public."

"Incredible results! I used 80 mg (40 mg about 1 h before and 40 mg 10 to 15 minutes before the presentation) since my weight is 85 kg. No more fear of public presentations, especially when a microphone was involved!!"

"These reviews are highly accurate. I have suffered public speaking anxiety my whole life but I'm in a position now in my job where I have no choice but to speak. Used this for the first time yesterday. Took 20 mg about 1.5 hours before my speech and was totally clam the whole time I was up there. No shaking, no racing heart and no quivering voice. Awesome! Highly recommend."
