I'm responsible for my own anxiety. I'm always checking my heart rate. It's usually 67-78bpm. I take 50mg of atenolol daily. What should I do?

In brief: CBT Consult

This recurrent question is worth a consult with a Health Tap psychologist or other mental health provider who offers cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
This will help answer questions like: What is the function behind checking your pulse so frequently? Is there a valid reason? Or is it a obsessive/anxiety based behavior? CBT skills can help you manage anxiety more effectively and modify behavior.
