I had a discussion last week with my doctor to review my meds. I’m going to stick with the antidepressants for now and review again in a year. However, he recommended that I also have some beta-blockers to be used as required for particularly anxiety-inducing situations. He suggested that I try one during the evening when I’m relaxing just to see if there are any unpleasant side effects or not.
The thing is, I wonder why the doctor who first prescribed me the antidepressants, different to the one I spoke with last week, didn’t recommend the beta-blockers from the get go? They could have been very useful in the early stages of dealing with the anxiety and doing the CBT. Ho hum.
