Whats The Use Of Beta Blockers Like Tenolol. Can It Be Used As Anti Anxiety


Beta blockers can be helpful in the treatment of the physical symptoms of anxiety, especially social anxiety. Physicians prescribe them to control rapid heartbeat, shaking, trembling, and blushing in anxious situations for several hours.

Possible Benefits. Very safe for most patients. Few side effects. Not habit-forming.

Possible Disadvantages. Often social anxiety symptoms are so strong that beta blockers, while helpful, cannot reduce enough of the symptoms to provide relief. Because they can lower blood pressure and slow heart rate, people diagnosed with low blood pressure or heart conditions may not be able to take them. Not recommended for patients with asthma or any other respiratory illness that causes wheezing, or for patients with diabetes.
