In brief: Maybe

B-blockers can be great drugs for the right anxious pt.
The prescriber should be aware of your personal and family medical history. Certainly lower blood pressure and heart rate can be expected from these drugs so monitoring of vital signs will be a part of your doctor's good treatment. The brain and body are connected, so often somatic symptoms of anxiety aren't all that's improved w/ b-blocker
