Hi, I am B. Propanolol helps with physical symptoms of SA. Whether it be trembling, shakiness, heart pounding (mainly my symptom), and sometimes sweats. It should be taken about 45 min-1 hr before a highly anticipated event (social, speech, and performance(s)). I just graduated pharmacy school so if anyone has any questions for me you can shoot the questions in my inbox. Again propanolol isn't meant to be taken everyday but on an as needed basis. I feel if you take it right with the mind set that it will not make the anxiety go away you should be fine.
