Bystolic for Anxiety

I am currently taking 2.5mg Bystolic, my cardiologist prescribed them to me to help control my heart rate. I was having lots of panic attacks and my pulse would get really high. I am on day 7 of the beta, I do feel a huge difference, a lot less anxiety, all my physical symptoms of anxiety are gone. However, I am noticing some effects of the beta blocker, such as heavy legs, really tired, tightness in chest. Some people are telling me this can't be the beta blocker, and that I should stick out my 30 day regiment. Has anyone experienced this medication for anxiety before? I am debating if I should get off this or not. I like how it keeps my heart pounding/racing down, but now I am worried the effects from the drug could be worse.

Medication definitely affects us all in different ways, but there are side effects to any medication that we take.  The question that I ask myself is do the benefits I get from something outweigh negatives?  If they do, I tend to stay on it.  However, if you are not comfortable with it there are different classes of medicaitons that are prescribed specifically for anxiety.  Also, we are already nervous and can tend to focus on the potential side effects much more intently, in my experience with anxiety.  Keep us posted!

Thank you for your response. I am thinknig my anxiety is making me believe I am having side effects, like tight chest, shortness of breath. I don't have any symptoms a majority of time I am on the med. I will give it some more time I suppose.
