Beta blockers for anxiety? Ha! As if!

That sounds rather like what epinephrine (novacaine or any -caine) does to me.

My reaction to the propranolol was a rash, followed the next day by swelling
of the tongue and throat. The reaction to the propranolol took two weeks to
happen. The reaction to the epinephrine is within minutes.

Which makes me very leery of ever needing to use an EpiPen or anything like
that. When an allergy took me to the ER last year I was given 3 Benedryl and
2 cortisone pills.
