Dont Self medicate!: I presume if your holter was normal your metoprolol is to reduce frequency of panic attacks? Your anxiety is not being treated properly and my concern is that you are "self medicating" for your underlying condition. ( anxiety) Also cannabis can trigger anxiety, paranoia and psychosis! Please seek mental health help!
