Has anyone been prescribed beta blockers (blood pressure med) for anxiety?

I use propranolol for tachycardia, I know some who use for anxiety. It will lower BP some so ensure you dont have low BP – talk to Dr.

Was your blood pressure high at the time?

I used to have panic attacks and my BP sky rocked. My BP stays normal throughout the day when I take propranolol or am set off by a variety of words usually spoken by a male . I grew up with an extremely narcissistic Father. More than a perfectionist he was racist , sexist , etc, etc.
I couldn’t exist in that family.
Anyway , lexapro and propranolol keep me alive.
