After suffering panic attacks for about 10 years from age 27 to 37, ruining a marriage, promotion opportunities, etc. I consider my self a subject matter expert on misery. My panic attacks turned into a multitude of phobias. I avoided everything that might be a trigger for an attack.

Let me roll this up in a ball for you. If you think you are about to die...if your heart is beating like a flooded out Evenrude...then there is no amount of tea or deep breathing that is going to help you.

If you are like me and the first thing you experience is a pounding in your chest that tells your mind that you should be really, really scared then you don't have a mental problem...you have an electrical problem.

After 10 years of psychobabble, anti depressants, tranquilizers, hypnosis, biofeedback, and other crap I relayed my frustration to my internist.

He said some people have a heart that is sensitive to adrenaline. He prescribed a beta blocker and POOF...PANIC ATTACKS GONE! No more screaming for mama on the elevator...no more running up and down the isle on the airplane! Shazam!

That was 25 years ago. My brother and my son have gone through the same thing.

Ask you doctor about a low dose Atenolol. It's a cheap, effective drug that only makes you feel normal.

Good luck. I know how miserable your are.

Makes sense to me. I will talk to my Dr. I really need to get this under control. I'll let you know if it works for me.

is this something you have to take the rest of your life or is it something you just take for a while and are able to quit taking once the body adapts to not having anymore panic attacks?

Atenolol is for high blood pressure. How can this meds help with panic attack?

I read this post and this sounded very similar to my issue. I have had panic attacks for years and this has adversely affected my career and has held me back from many opportunities.

The description of the “electrical problem” sounds exactly like the problem I have had. Racing heart, light-headedness, etc. Especially when I had to give any public presentation or speech.

I have tried many things and some of it helped but nothing really solved the problem.

After reading this post, I went to my doctor and got a prescription for Atenolol. You are absolutely right!! Atenolol has pretty much taken care of the problem 100%. Also, there have been no side effects or any sense that I am on any drug at all.

If you have this kind of problem, you should try Atenolol. It is the only thing that has actually fixed the problem for me. There are really no side effects and nothing to lose.

I think that it is simply some “bad wiring” in our body and not some deep psychological problem. The panic attacks lead to psychological problems because you start to avoid situations that trigger the attacks. Then you have depression because you feel like you can’t ever just be “normal”.

It is frustrating because I have been to the doctor multiple times and have participated in panic support groups. But no one ever mentioned Atenolol.

I am not exaggerating; it has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. If you are in a similar situation; give it a try and see if it helps you.

Was on atenolol for 10+yrs for high blood pressure. It has never helped my panic attacks.Taken off atenolol 2 yrs ago, have the same panic attacks.

I experienced all of these symptoms. By chance when going to urgent care during an attack, a doctor took an EKG. Ended up I didn't have panic attacks, I had WPW syndrome. An electrical glitch in my heart. After 2 ablations, I was pretty much cured. I was also told that I am sensitive to heart rate changes. I was given a beta blocker (I only take 1/2 of the minimum dosage) for when I feel my heart rate increasing. As time has gone by, I rarely have to use it and have not had a full attack since.
