I also have similar problem. Initially doctor gave Atenelol (Beta blocker) 25 mg for my anxiety and palpitations. Now the B.P has increased so doctor increased it to 50 and now 100. Now the B.P (systolic) spikes to
165/170 and then I get panicky. I take anxiety pill and then I am ok. I am going to doctor tomorrow as I am scared to death and it affects my sleep.
I don't know what's wrong with me.
