Has anyone heard of Propranolol? I went into the doctor's office today, she isnt my regular, but my regular is on vacation. I told her what I've been dealing with and she thinks its anxiety/stress related and suggested propranolol. I don't think its anxiety or stress, and I'm gonna get the opinion of my main doctor before taking it. Has anyone else tried it?

      @gymdog I might consider it then! I was wary of trying it without the opinion of my main doctor.

      Yes propranolol is a typical med for POTS. Tho it is prescribed for anxiety, it works on the same mechanisms that give us our symptoms. It doesn't help all my symptoms but it does help with my heart rate or if I'm feeling a little extra jittery
