    SEEMS TO BE THE BIGGEST TROUBLE WITH ME IM ON A BETA BLOCKERS
    FOR THAT PROBLEM, NOW SOME PEOPLE CAN’T TAKE BETA BLOCKERS
    BECAUSE THEY HAVE ASMA AND THEY DONT GIVE IT TO PEOLE WITH
    ASMA BUT IN MY CASE IM BORDERLINE ASMATIC SO IT DOESN’T BOTHER
    ME. WHAT IT DOES DO IS SLOWS MY HEART RATE FROM 130 TO THE NORMAL 70,80
    WHICH HELPS MOST OF THE TIME , I ALS0 TAKE LORAZEPAM NOW THIS
    RELAX’S ME AND HELPS ME SLEEP AT NIGHT. THESE 2 DRUGS HAVE BEEN
    WORKING ,OK YOU CAN’T BE DOING NOTHING YOU HAVE TO TAKE SOMETHING
    SPEAK AGAIN WITH YOUR DOCTOR THEY SAY THE LORAZEPAM IS THE LEAST
    ADDICTING ,WELL I HOPE SO. MY EMAIL IS STEVEJ@CYBERUS.CA

    Shannon: Beta Blockers work better than Xanax any day of the week, because
    the anxiety is actually caused by the effect of the thyroid hormones on your
    adrenal glands, etc. Inderal is the most common one used for this, I think.
    Others are Metropolol and Atenol. It works somewhat right away, and then in a few
    days really kicks in. My heart had been going bananas, particularly in the middle of
    the night, waking me out of a deep sleep into a panic state.

    I hope you can get your doctor to give it a whirl. Take care. Glynis
