This is Dr. David
I am sorry about your blood clots.
it sounds like you need more than propranolol for the anxiety.
if your panic attacks are bad, you need some other medications like clonazepam (klonopin)
or vadium (diazepam)
and an SSRI agent like zoloft or paxil or lexapro to help your anxiety.
Hi, sorry I have diazepam but mainly to help me sleep. The propanolol does help but only in reducing blood pressure & heart rate as I still get panic symptoms.
you should talk to your doctor about an SSRI agent or SNRI agent like zoloft or paxil to help your anxiety.
to see if these agents can over time decrease your anxiety symptoms.
have you used these agents before for your anxiety?
OK, they are not as bad as a couple of weeks ago, I now recognise when they are starting & the routine they go through, so breathing & sitting them out help.
No I haven't.
I hope your anxiety gets better.
meditation and deep breathing can help
exercise therapy can help
talking to a therapist can help your anxiety as well
Thankyou so do I.
I hope your blood clots get better.

do you see the ratings area below?
Do you have any help on the clots?
they will get better on the warfarin.
make sure you get regular blood testing to see your INR level is between 2-3.
that means your warfarin dose is correct.
It has been jumping around a bit
avoid large amounts of spinach and greens and kale as these have a lot of vitamin K and can cause your warfarin to not work.
good luck .
your levels should stabilize
What about the symptoms I have?
they are normal for your situation.
don't let your anxiety get out of control.
the warfarin will help over time.
