Yes, bisoprolol for example -- I'm taking that.

It is interesting that they found propranolol to decease depression risk, because it has been though that it could do the inverse.

This makes me mad because I gave away 5 years of my life on a blood pressure med. It made me suicidal and stole my personality. Only once I'd quit for 2 weeks did I recover. Angiotensin 2 receptor blocker to be specific.

I took it because I had a stroke. I'd rather be a ticking time bomb than go back on.

It's interesting. I was prescribed propranolol for headaches and test anxiety after I was taken of celexa. Didn't do so much for that but otherwise it seems to be this weird miracle drug for me. Just 5mgs will:

-Pull me out of weird tired, zoned out modes when coffee or ritalin won't.
-allow me to sleep without having night terrors and adrenaline "shocks"
-calm me down when I'm having bursts of irritability
-exercise without feeling like I'm drowning and my head is going explode.
