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
