Took Speriva Respimat for asthma. It helped. But afraid to take it. I read it has 50% mortaIity rate. Have always had irregular heart beats so worried.

Try it. Koala, if your anxiety and depression symptoms are very severe, you need treatment. Many times anxious patients are afraid to take medications because of the side effects.
