  1. I am wondering if this worked - any updates?
  2. I never tried it on its own, but I have high blood pressure, hence the bet blocker.
  3. The combo of Effexor and Proponolol helped me tremendously, but I really want to prevent anyone from having to suffer from this, specifically in school. It was just awful. Every day was dreadful. It took me years to try treatments and see therapists. I really hope that my children did not inherit my nervous system. I think that if the meds can be almost advertised for this, or this condition can be discussed more openly, it would be a start in the right direction.
  4. I'm sure it does - please talk to your GP about it!
  5. It does calm my nerves a bit, but I still get nervous thinking I am going to blush and it does not happen. I would suggest talking to your GP to give it a try. I am just curious to know why/how this works so well. I wonder if blushing is a hormone deficiency that results in blushing when we respond to perceived stress. I wish I started taking this when I was 11.....grrrr.
  6. Well, I do not blush or have hot flashes (quite important). I feel more focused actually (which was not the intent when I started it). It's easier for me to concentrate and my mind wanders less. I'm curious to know how an SNRI (vs SSRI) can actually stop the blushing.
  7. Can we have a discussion regarding why this actually works? If anyone has a medical background it would be helpful. Do we all have this hormone/neurotransmitter deficiency? https://universityhealthnews.com/daily/depression/surprising-research-challenges-our-understanding-of-norepinephrine-deficiency/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6291328
  8. This is the BEST medication for blushing and flushing.
  9. This works - 75 mg every morning.
  10. HI. I have tried various meds in the past, but I would suggest that anyone struggling try the following: Effexor XR 75 mg in the am + propranolol 60 mg extended release also in the am. This makes it easy to go to work, greet people in the elevator, etc. I was asked to do a speech in front of 250 ppl, and not a single blush. I never even raised my hand in school because this was so debilitating. I do not experience side effects. Just spreading the word to help anyone.
  11. Contact Dr. Neilson's patient's and they will tell you the truth - he is very experienced and this surgery was the best thing that they ever did. I spoke to a handful of them (I am not one myself), but they could not believe the person that they became after this surgery. They all had no - minor side effects. I could only imagine what my life would have been like had I had this done as a child. Seriously, call them and speak to them yourself - you will be pleasantly surprised.
