Thanks to you guys I gathered all the info I need and the only beta blocker I could get was Metoprolol. I tried 1 pill and it does the trick but when I tried it out the other day in class I was still nervous. Does anyone have a suggested dosage for a presentation? They are 25 mg each and I plan on taking a benzo with it like xanax

Well the adult dose for hypertension is 100 mg in 1 or divided doses, so 25 mg will not have dramatic effects. I'm not too familiar with metoprolol, though. I would say just try two pills.

You WILL still feel nervous by the way, it's just the physiological symptoms of anxiety that are masked which in turn lowers anxiety for some people. Stacking a benzo w/ the metoprolol as you mentioned like xanax (.5mg-1mg) will make you feel less nervous.
