Default Taking inderal and ativan at the same time?

Hello everyone. My question is this: I have a huge presentation to make this Friday, and I've recently used the inderal for another shorter presentation and it worked wonders. I'm wondering though, because this presentation will be longer and in front of more people, would it be safe for me to take my Inderal(10 mgs) and Ativan (.5) at the same time before my presentation? I've never taken the Inderal and Ativan together before, and just want to hear what other people thought and their experiences. I was also thinking of taking 20mgs of Inderal that day instead of my usual 10.(I don't use these meds daily, just when I'm making a presentation or if I'm going to a meeting where I'll have to speak.) Thank you all for your help!!

It should be safe to mix a beta blocker & benzo. After all, there are lots of people with high blood pressure who take beta blockers daily and still take benzos for anxiety.

It is safe. I took this combination for a while and I did not have any problems.

if possible it always helps to try out any new combination of meds in advance

but any problems are most unlikely from your cocktail

Thank you everyone, for your replies. I tried them both together and they worked very well. My presentation went pretty good, although I still hate giving them. The meds just make it ALOT easier to get through!!
