In brief: Speech nervousness

Medication called "beta blocker" such as a low dose of Inderal (propranolol) (propanolol) is frequently used very eficiently to calm the heart rate and trembling before and during a speech.
It is quite fast acting and short lasting so after the speech, the body rapidly returns to it normal state. If you are solid and healthy, without a heart problem, it most often work quite satisfyingly.
