Anxiety is a mental health condition which can make everyday tasks overwhelmingly difficult. Although everyone experiences anxiety at times, for example before a job interview, if you suffer from anxiety this feeling is exacerbated and caused by triggers which most people would have no problem with, such as walking through a busy town or taking a bus. Anxiety is characterised by the fact that this reaction is disproportionate to what the mind identifies as the threat. There are different types of anxiety, the most common being Generalised Anxiety Disorder. Situational anxiety can be caused by either an everyday kind of situation, like getting in a busy lift, or a huge change in your life, such as moving house. You can buy the situational anxiety drug Propranolol from an online doctor such as iMeds, which is a type of beta blocker. Beta blockers reduce the speed and ferocity with which your heart beats, which reduces your blood pressure. Beta blockers can therefore calm you down, so you are less likely to have an anxiety attack. Otherwise anxiety can limit your life and make living independently more difficult.

To a certain extent, anxiety is a normal feeling that everyone experiences, and it can keep you on your toes and performing at your best. However, suffering from an anxiety disorder means your reactions to situations are disproportionately fearful, which can impede your ability to live independently and happily. Propranolol is a type of beta blocker which slows your heart beat down - a fast heart beat can be the first symptom of suffering from an anxiety attack. A slow heartbeat can calm you down, and reduce the likelihood and severity of suffering from anxiety attacks.
