Beta blockers?

Recommended Posts

I've just got back from my GP after having a good talk to her about the types of medication that would be available to me,as a Blusher!

I feel very lucky that my doctor understands the problem I have with FB.I told her that I am not a fan of popping a pill in order to overcome this thing,but I told her that I was willing to give it a try to see if it helps.She gave me a mild form of beta blockers that I have to use no more then 3 times a week, and only when needed.

So I'm only posting this to ask if any of you have used BB and if so what have your results been like?

Did it stop you from blushing,or did it just put you in a place where you couldn't care if you did?

hi english-ice

I tried beta blockers (10mg of propranolol) they did help cut down on the anxiety, but I never really noticed any difference with the blushing.

ive tried this as well (aka inderal)

it helps, but i found i needed to take about 40mg for better effects.

it takes around an hour for effects to kick in.

it's sort of hard to notice you've actually taken anything, but it's when you start to get anxious or red that you notice the effects. you don't panic as much

works a lot better with a tab of valium

Beta Blockers in my opinion, cool down your mind and lowers the adrenalin, but its not a magic pill to stop you from blushing. But its a great tool to start overcoming tough situations. Step by step a blusher needs to climb higher mountains and challenge his/her fears, and beta blockers might be that extra oxygen to help on the journey. The hardest part for a blusher to get beta blockers is to visit a doctor because many blushers also got social phobia. Luckely you can order the pills from internet, even without prescription if you find the right pharmacy.

Here is a list of Beta Blockers. You wont need a prescription to buy from this pharmacy:

Atenolol

Cervedilol

Lopresor

Inderal (Propranolol)

Regards, Seb.

So I looked at that pharmacy, It's not a pharmacy at all. They refer to themselves as a "broker for pharmacies around the world". Sebastian, have you used this brokerage? What were your results?

Sure you can get anything off the internet, does that mean you should? I did order my first few rounds of drugs off a forein website. I also took way too much propananlol my first time too. Something else to consider is that some of the beta blockers you mention above could have drug interactions. Like ceredilol shouldnt be taken with paxil. This is why most countries require a doctors order. Someone with a medical degree can help you choose the right meds or combination of meds. They can help you figure out what is the best dosage for your body type and condition.

I understand not wanting to talk to a doctor about this weird problem, I had a hard time finding a doc that would listen and believe me. Eventually I wrote down what I wanted to tell a new doctor and as i started to read it I had a blush attack right in front of him. Now its easy to talk to him because he understands the symptoms of panic disorder. And this blushing thing is really a type of that. We tried some different drugs at a safe and cautious dose and now I feel great and rarely blush anymore.

My final thoughts on this subject is: If you feel you must absolutly order drugs from a internet pharmacy DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Less is best, at least to start. But no amount of internet searching will ever add up to the knowledge of a medical professional.

Now to take you to task Mr. Lepinski, every now and the you breeze through here and make comments or give advice. And thats what this forum is for. What I have a problem with is the fact that every post that you make is also a advertisement for your "blushers manaul". So I'm not sure if your posts are disingenuous advertisements or actual compasion for the people that you are tring to help. If it is compassion, then why are you selling your information instead of giving it to the people? Also it apears that this pharmacy brokerage that you recomend gives kick backs to people like you that recomend them. Heres a quote from your pharmacy:

"An Affiliate Program is a software based tracking method controlled by a third party (independent company) that tracks all commercial activity between two websites. Sales, clicks, impressions are all clearly displayed in your affiliate account. You send us traffic, we track it and we share the profit from each sale you generate. You will be our business partner!" http://www.xlpharmacy.com/affiliates.php

One thing is for sure... if I had some information that could help someone else to ease thier suffering, I would give it for free. And thats why most of us are on here. To help others, and learn from them.

Hi there, Johnnyboy.

I’m not sure what the exact definition is regarding pharmacy or broker but I think most people will understand what I mean. I have ordered beta blockers from them several times without problem. (I have also ordered other medicines from them) They are very professional and can help you with dosages and other questions. Also with the order they send their prescription so it will not be any problems in the customs. If you want it cheaper I guess it would be cheaper if you pay a visit to your local doctor but many blushers can’t face another person, to talk about their problems and get medicine that way. Yes and of course people should be aware of the risk and side effects and so on. If you are going to mix medicines you are totally right about that you need medical consultation in one way or another. Very brave of you to confront your problems ,WITH a doctor in front of you. Most blushers (with social phobia as most blushers have) should not even think about it.

Yes I can understand that you would like my manual to be totally free but to be honest with you, it have taken me lots and lots of work to write this manual. I think it’s a fair price for the information. I understand that many internet users want everything to be free but I doubt that any of one here on this forum would spend so many months working on a book and then give it away totally free. I would be happy to pay the author a small fee as a compensation for his/hers hard work. Regarding that the “pharmacy†uses affiliate software is nothing unique, most web shops and so on, have such technicalities. I can understand using your credit card at a for you unknown internet shop to get medicines might feel a bit suspicious but I think some people at this forum can assure that this web shop delivers and are professional in their manner.

Best regards, Seb.

Forgive me Sebastian if my assumptions regarding your intentions here are wrong.

The difference between a pharmacy and a broker for world wide phamacies is this: While the broker may be located in Canada, it may be subcontracting with a pharmacy located in India or some other third world country. Viagra and Soma (drugs also offered from this broker) seem to be the drugs that are proliferated from these countries at deeply discounted prices. Usually the broker subcontracts with the cheapest pharmacy willing to send the meds. Maybe the beta blockers come from a western country? If you have ordered them from this company with good results, then I will take you at your word for it. But if the return address is from Laos or Kazakhstand... I'd throw it away!

No problem, pal.

It was some time ago since I ordered the last time from them, so I don't have the package left. But I’m pretty sure the return address not was from Laos or Kazakhstan. Yes I have ordered and tried their Inderal several times. I can also recommend their blue pills for every guy who wants to be a stallion for a day. :shock: :lol: 8)

[But no amount of internet searching will ever add up to the knowledge of a medical professional.

well you will not likely receive the same knowledge as a medical professional, but you must remember that doctors are people too and mis diagnose all the time. you can't blame them, they don't know everything!

i for one feel i know more about anxiety than your average GP. and maybe somewhat on par with my not so great psychiatrist.

sure the person with the problem can be ignorant in thinking they know what they have, but at the same time, they are the actual ones who know what it feels like to suffer from their anxiety or psychological health issues

not trying to down talk the professionals, but just the mere fact that the professionals i've seen appear to all have their own personal opinions and methods on treating your problems, just shows that the professionals are not necessarily more correct than you. you might have to think about that a bit to understand my logic

btw, i went to a doctor initially so i could get prescriptions to treat myself. at first i thought that my social anxiety would make that really tough, but i realised that showing my social anxiety to my doctor would in fact make it easier to explain to him! (because he would witness my shyness or blushing)

however as i had realised this, i was ironically (but understandably) quite confident becaues i did not fear showing signs of my anxiety.

proof that it's the fear that triggers it.

I've done propranolol... it made public speaking easier, but I when I was on it, I felt like I was moving through concrete all day. It did not really help my blushing. :\ I've gone through a year of therapy and medications.... social situations are a breeze for me now, and I'm very self-confident! But my blushing will not stop.
