Toprol XL

Hi, I am currently on 25mg Toprol XL 1x day. It has controlled my hr/bp. I tests and my heart is ok with no coronary artery disease. I had a series of panic attacks that resulted in a hospital admission. I believe the cardiologist put me on it because he knows it also will control symptoms of anxiety. I also take klonopin (.05mg)  and use it for sleep and as needed for anxiety.  Has anyone successfully weaned themselves off Toprol and used non prescription methods of controlling the condition. My blood pressure averages 107/70 with heartrate average of 65. Thanks, Mark
