Anyone had any success using this medication? I read it is a type of beta blocker and it is supposed to help the physical symptoms of social anxiety by blocking adrenaline. What dose were you on and how long until it started to work? Thanks

Best beta-blocker that I have used for anxiety. It has an acute effect. So, you will notice a change around 45 min-1 hr tops. I believe the pdoc scripted me 20mg and up to 40mg. I like to keep some around. So, I can use prn.

I like it too. I take 10-40mg/day as needed. It starts working straight away. No side effects for me.

Take it with a grain of salt. I only got results when I absolutely abused the stuff from a really low day. It pooped out though
