Propranolol for Anxiety

Propranolol for anxiety and other problems such as blood pressure are treated using Propranolol. Propranolol belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers. They are designed to work on the heart and blood vessels.

These nerves are called beta-adrenergic receptors and when blocked the heart beats more slowly and with less force.

How Quickly Does Propranolol Work for Anxiety?

One might wonder how quickly does propranolol work for anxiety? It can take anywhere between 30-60 minutes for the effects of propranolol to become noticeable. The initial 30-60 minutes can vary depending on the person and can be anywhere in-between.

The majority of people taking propranolol to treat performance anxiety use it about one hour before any stress related events.

How Long Does Propranolol Last?

How long does propranolol last? Typically propranolol has a half-life of eight to 10 hours, meaning about half of the dose will still be active within your body after the eight to 10 hour mark. The noticeable effects, however, can last for about 12 hours, slightly longer than the half-life.

Please refer to the patient information leaflet if you are still unsure about how long does propranolol last.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe.

Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life, But some people find it hard to control their worries.
Their feelings of anxiety are more constant and can often affect their daily lives.

Anxiety is the main symptom of several conditions, including:

panic disorder
phobias, such as agoraphobia or claustrophobia
post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
social anxiety disorder (social phobia)
The information in this section is about a specific condition called generalised anxiety disorder (GAD).

GAD is a long-term condition that causes you to feel anxious about a wide range of situations and issues, rather than one specific event.

People with GAD feel anxious most days and often struggle to remember the last time they felt relaxed.

As soon as one anxious thought is resolved, another may appear about a different issue.

GAD can cause both psychological (mental) and physical symptoms.

These vary from person to person, but can include:

feeling restless or worried
having trouble concentrating or sleeping
dizziness or heart palpitations
Find out about the symptoms of GAD

When to get help for anxiety

Although feelings of anxiety at certain times are completely normal, see your GP if anxiety is affecting your daily life or causing you distress.

What causes GAD?

The exact cause of GAD isn’t fully understood, although it’s likely that a combination of several factors plays a role.

Who’s affected

GAD is a common condition, estimated to affect up to 5% of the UK population.

Slightly more women are affected than men, and the condition is more common in people from the ages of 35 to 59.

With treatment, many people are able to control their anxiety levels. But some treatments may need to be continued for a long time and there may be periods when your symptoms worsen.

Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) can affect you both physically and mentally.

You should see a GP if anxiety is affecting your daily life or is causing you distress.

Psychological symptoms of GAD

GAD can cause a change in your behaviour and the way you think and feel about things, resulting in symptoms such as:

restlessness
a sense of dread
feeling constantly “on edge”
difficulty concentrating
irritability
Your symptoms may cause you to withdraw from social contact (seeing your family and friends) to avoid feelings of worry and dread.

You may also find going to work difficult and stressful, and may take time off sick. These actions can make you worry even more about yourself and increase your lack of self-esteem.

Physical symptoms of GAD

GAD can also have a number of physical symptoms, including:

dizziness
tiredness
a noticeably strong, fast or irregular heartbeat (palpitations)
muscle aches and tension
trembling or shaking
dry mouth
excessive sweating
shortness of breath
stomach ache
feeling sick
headache
pins and needles
difficulty falling or staying asleep (insomnia)
Anxiety triggers
If you’re anxious because of a specific phobia or because of panic disorder, you’ll usually know what the cause is.
