My DR. perscribed 40mg as needed for anxiety (I am anxious often). My very first use (1/2 a pill, 20mg) was a home run. It worked so good that what I used to think was impossible (speaking in front of others) is now very peaceful. My heart does not race out of my chest, thus a more relaxing life.--- I am, just recently experiancing some dizziness which is a reaction, but it might be due to alergies. I need to see the Dr to determine the cause.

I have used it for anxiety related to public speaking. Since it is a beta blocker that blocks epinephrine, it works very well by temporarily blocking the ability to experience anxiety. You have to be careful, it tends to cause depression afterwards.

I was up to 160 mg per day. I gained 20 lbs in 8 weeks! My chest was always tight and I was easily winded. I'm trying to taper down and have HORRIBLE withdrawal. If you are on a low dose..please wean yourself off. I shake, have panic attacks, muscle spasms, insomnia, etc. And i'm tapering slowly for the past few weeks. I was only on it 8 weeks!

Use over 25 years ... concern of no longer being available.

While this does help prevent migraines- I'm down to one a month now, usually in conjunction with my period- the weight gain is a problem. I've gained 20 pounds while on this and my appetite has ramped up. It's hard to get the energy to exercise when your blood pressure gets low. I wish there was a way to suppress appetite and weight gain, but given that before this I was having migraines 5 times a week, I'll take the fat over the agony.

This medication is not worth the side effects, I am better off finding other ways to manage my migraines!!!!!

Been on it for one month. Not worth the side effects. Gained 7 lbs, got my period twice after not having it for 20 months and having chest pains.

If I take it everyday it prevents my migrains which for me is a life saver!
