Propranolol is a beta-blocker that can help control the physical symptoms of anxiety. Taken before a stressful event, Propranolol can help ease the performance anxiety during your big event – like a big presentation at work or interview.
Beta-blockers prevent adrenaline, from making contact with your beta receptors, limiting your body’s physical reactions to anxiety. These reactions can include a racing heartbeat, shaky voice or hands, or sweating. By reducing some of these physical reactions, propranolol can help you feel less anxious.
Propranolol can help some people who struggle from performance anxiety during particularly stressful situations. This can include having to speak in front of an audience, an audition, or an interview. Talk with your doctor about whether Propranolol is right for you.
If your doctor prescribes propranolol, Hims sends the dose approved by your doctor. It is typically taken on an as-needed basis in a single dose 30-60 minutes prior to the stressful event, but make sure to follow your doctor’s instructions on dosage and timing.
