Propranolol (inderal) for test anxiety in kids?

Propranolol (inderal) for test  anxiety in kids?

I don't do this.: Some drs treat test anxiety w/ propanolol(inderal). I do not. This med is cognitively suppressive-esp if used episodically-so it can backfire. My experience is that there are better meds& methods. Also, I do not treat this anxiety only during testing. Whatever meds are used should be used routinely; otherwise, it is less effective. Plus, the patient needs to be acclimated well in advance of test. ...Read more

From your description of "kinda off" it's hard to know much about what's really happening with you -- so i sincerely suggest you speak with your doctor about it. Please also consider seeing a psychologist or other therapist to talk about this. ...Read more
