Not exactly: Metoprolol is a beta-blocker that can inhibit the peripheral symptoms of anxiety & panic, but you might still feel the central emotion of anxiety.

I am taking metoprolo tarta for afib. I recently started having a lot of panic attacks. My ? Can i take relaquil with my metopro is this safe for me
It : It is difficult to tell exactly what is responsible for the symptoms that you are experiencing on the basis of the limited information that you provided. Metoprolol could be a suspect because it is known to cross what is called the blood-brain barrier or bbb and have direct effects on the central nervous system. These actions may cause such side effects as dizziness, lightheadedness, memory loss and depression, just to mention a few. In addition, metoprolol could reduce your blood pressure and slow the heart rate. Adding a complex mixture of compounds such as relaquil that can further affect your central nervous system may only complicate the overall situation. At this point a good strategy would be to discuss your symptoms-including the panic attacks-with the doctor who prescribed metoprolol. After a thorough evaluation, he or she may decide on a different medication that has similar effectiveness on atrial fibrillation but unlike metoprolol does not cross the bbb. ...Read more

Im from the uk, age 16, im currently taking 1/2 beta blocker 3 times a day to stop me from taking a panic attack etc w
Could i overdose on this much and what times.should.i take these at?
Beta blockers may be considered an off label "anxiolytic" (anti-anxiety drug), but the reality is that doctors appear to have no idea how it works.
That should be a fairly clear warning sign as to why beta blockers should not be your first choice when it comes to your anxiety treatment. Scientists have no idea why beta blockers appear to reduce anxiety. Pl consult your GP re optimal dosing. ...Read more

Low dose: That is a very small dose of xanax, (alprazolam) and your urine, especially if you drink lots of fluids, may be dilute enough that the results fall below the limits of detection of the specific test and will be reported as negative. In general, the first morning urine of the day is the most concentrated, and that specimen is more likely to be positive. ...Read more

I am a teen girl and I have been having unexpected panic attacks and worry about them for about 6 days now! Is this just me changing or is a problem!?
Hard to tell.: A full blown panic attack is not normal even for an adolescent, but some amount of weird feelings may be normal. Teen years are enough to drive most people involved pretty crazy at times. You're so right to note that you're changing. In many ways. But panic is worth an exam and evaluation. I'd avoid meds if possible, but some counseling might really help you understand yourself as you change. Best ...Read more

Is 20mg of celexa (citalopram) a effective dose for a 30 years 270lbs for panic attacks it has made me better but would higher dose work better makes me spacey?
Weighty question: Weight has really little to do with drug metabolism in adults. The question is which is the most effective dose for your symptoms?

Celexa (citalopram) is not a cure, so the lowest effective dose is the best dose. ...Read more
