Reason being that if the physical symptoms go away, then the anxiety does too. (Propranolol is prescribed for people who have essential tremor. Some times these people who have the tremor become anxious because of it. Once the tremor is gone, generally by taking the beta blocker, then the anxiety goes too.) This is not the case with everyone as it was not with me, that's for sure. It is very common to prescribe the two together.
I am a 38 year old who has been developing a tremor in my dominant hand for the past 18 months. I also have been taking imipramine for the last 18 years for a panic disorder. I tried reducing my imipramine dosage about the time the tremor began but then went back up to my original dose. The tremor continued and seems to be getting worse. Ive read that imipramine can cause tremors but find it hard to believe it would start after all these years.
I take Propanolol for a tremor and have for many years while going from Prozac to Zoloft, and Lexapro with no problems. It is prescribed for various reasons with anxiety being one. But it is short acting meaning it doesn't stay in your system for more than a few hours. Many who take it for anxiety are public speakers who need to calm down right before making a speech. If your anxiety is severe there may be better ones for you, but only your doctor will know.
) in my calves, along with benign familial tremor. I tried propanolal for several years, which decreased the severity of both problems. Unfortunately, the respitory side-effects from the medicine forced me to discontinue it. Any suggestions on different medications that I might try? Also any thoughts on someone somewhere specializing in myokymia? Thank you.
my question is, has anyone taken this propranolol (20mg once a day) for anxiety problems? and does anyone think increasing the paxil will help at all for me? ps, ive had anxiety since i was young, but it started to increase about 1 month 1/2 ago when i woke up in the morning and took a shower and the room started spinning and passed out. scariest moment of my life, they said it was vasovagal and all my blood work and so on was normal. but, yeah i knew since that day my anxiety would be worse.
I am looking for alternatives to treat my anxiety and depression that will not exacerbate my tremor. It's hard to be an RN if your hands are shaking; putting a needle in a vial to draw up meds is quite a challenge. I have eliminated caffeine from my diet and have increased my sleep schedule. My BP is naturally low (when off caffeine) SBP 105-110 mgHg, so adding propranolol is not an option. Clonazepam helps a little, it think, it's hard to tell.

This not only sorted out the heart and blood pressure but also stopped the inner tremor. I know its the Propranolol working, because if I stop the medication the tremor returns. It also returns if I have significant alcohol, because apparently alcohol stops the med working. It might be worth others trying Propranolol (low dose) to see if it reduces symptoms.
(no affect) Amantadine – 100MG, taken 1 tab twice daily. (Lessened tremor for just a day or tow but then made me nauseous, headachy). Propranolol – 20MB tabs, taken 1 tab daily. Since there was no affect, this was Increased to 3 tabs, 3 times daily. (No affect at either dosage). Prednizone – Tried a metered dose pack to see if it would reduce inflammation hoping to reduce the tremor some. (There was no significant affect).
This will likely resolve your current symptomatology that you are experiencing with Propranolol. Dosage equivalency for Atenolol to your current Propranolol dosage is 50 milligrams once daily. In the interim (until you can visit a physician), I would suggest heading for the emergency department if you feel the situation warrants it. Such symptomatology is generally progressive with this drug. Everything you have described suggests intolerance.
5MG, taken one tab, twice daily. (this lessened the tremor slightly for just a day or two but it kept me awake). Carbidopa-Levodopa – 25-100MG, taken 1 tab, three times daily, (Made me very Nauseous, with no affect). Clonazepam - .5MG tab, taken 1 tab, twice daily. (no affect) Amantadine – 100MG, taken 1 tab twice daily. (Lessened tremor for just a day or tow but then made me nauseous, headachy). Propranolol – 20MB tabs, taken 1 tab daily.

I have been on reflux meds for the past 5yrs and have had numerous side effects from hyperhydrosis, a tremor in my hand (which I was on propranolol for about 1yr 9mths for), and most recently a tic has developed in my eyelids. The hydrosis has finally went away (4.5yrs later) and the hand tremor is minimal but my eyelids are going nuts. I am assuming its the drugs for reflux (I am having surgery for that soon). Does anyone know of anything else that would be causing this?

I have been taking Klonopin and Propranolol for years, being treated for a benign tremor and migraines. I'm tired of feeling dopey all the time and I have quit the Klonopin and cut my Propranolol dosage in half. I've been getting leg cramps and headaches (not full-blown migraines, but nagging headaches that make me want to go back on the Klonopin). Can I expect these symptoms to disappear?

I believe the drugs caused a tremor I temporarily had in my hand (prescribed propranolol for 1.5yrs), hyperhydrosis (4yrs), and insomnia (recent). I have been on any one of these drugs for around 7yrs and look forward to getting off soon. As far as my eyes are concerned, the only thing I have at the moment is dry eye. However, I get tics in both my upper and lower eyelids on both eyes which tend to come and go. Some days they are constant and then some days, nothing.
Hello sspj, Based on your comments, you need to find a NEW DOCTOR immediately. Find a new doctor that will listen to you. Listen to your symptoms. All your symptoms like heart pounding, legs shaking, ears ringing, pain in your left arm, nausea in the morning could be side effects of one of the drugs you are currently taking. I have a guide book to drugs and supplements . I live in Canada. The book is called " The Canadian Guide to Drug and Supplements.
Just as I predicted he would do, he upped my dosage of Propranolol from 60mg once daily to 80mg once daily, as I told him it helped a lot with my 'essential tremor', and that I thought it helped with my headaches a little bit...he said I was on a low dose of Propranolol to begin with and that the next step to take would be to increase the dosage to see if this gets rid of my headaches, which I was still having daily.
If no underlying cause can be found, beta-blockers like Propranolol have been proven to minimize essential tremor. Do you plan to see a neurologist anytime soon? If the tremor persists for more than 2 - 3 weeks, or you begin to develop other symptoms, I would definitely visit your GP as soon as possible to get a handle on things and have some initial bloodwork run, and then schedule an appointment with a neurologist.
I am a 23 year old student and have had multiple sclerosis for nearly 3 years now. I have recently been prescribed Provigil to help with chronic fatigue during the day. I have been taking it for about a month now but lately I have noticed increased levels of anxiety. It is coming to the end of the semester and there are obviously deadlines looming etc and I am a naturally anxious person but I have never had this kind of anxiety.
My hepatologist gave me Propranolol, and after taking it in very low dosage for a week, I've noticed my tremor is not as bad. My hep doc said it will probably resolve and go back to normal after tx. I've also heard that Primidone can help. I haven't tried that yet. Hope you get it under control. I know how annoying it can be.
Probably gave him a few extra years. Lastly, propranolol for my racing heart to prevent heart attacks/ heart damage. I am seeing improvements in my weight and the itching has almost stopped completely. The tremor remain but I hear that is the last thing to lose. Some even have tremors after treatment of the thyroid. I'm taking all this in hopes of healing before radiation or surgery. I'm also receiving electric acupuncture to open the pathways in my body to promote healing.
Close observation for clinical and laboratory evidence of altered effects is recommended for both agents.

hi i was having what seems like hyper symptoms, even though i am on levothyroxine 150mcg. i was getting to the stage of not coping with the rapid heart beat & tremor. i had some inderalla (propranolol) 160mg. took one of those & heart calm & less of a tremor. so defo helps but not a cure.
He prescribed antibiotics for the sinus infection I don't have, i cant remember the name of it. The beta blocker was propranolol, this is my second time trying to take this. It made me nauseous and seemed to amplify my symptoms & the vertigo... I looked into Depersonalization & yeah that does kinda fit. I'll be driving and without warning i'll get spooked by a sense of detachment. My last appointment I did tell my doctor about the fatigue, vertigo & chest pain.
my situation--For the last two days I have not taking any medicine at all. The first night, without medicine, I managed to sleep for a total of five hours. The tremor were there, all right, but I guess I did not allow them to intimidate me as much as they had in the past. Therefore, I did not stayed awake worrying about them. Last night I slept about seven hours. The tremors woke me up a couple of times, but I simply "ignored" them and I manged to go back to sleep.
I also am on propranolol for tremors. I forget the mg, but take it twice daily. I am glad the mysoline helps you. :) Ess - thank you so much for your post. It truly means a lot because I feel myself slipping in my fight. I am finding myself questioning my quality of life. I feel my body growing more tired each day. Sometimes I feel like I can't take much more of this. I have never in my life felt suicidal and have never understood or comprehended why or how people get to that point.
Hi, I'm newly diagnosed with Hashimoto's/Hypothyroidism and I have noticed that each medicine dosage change/increase hits me like a ton of bricks for a few days and then things seem to level off. This is true even for increases. I was first diagnosed by a regular MD and prescribed Levothyroxine, which made me feel absolutely horrible. I didn't feel symptoms of hypothyroidism until I started taking that medication specifically.
