No, i mean propranolol. Pindolol is a rather quirky beta-blocker, and my experience attempting to use it for autonomic anxiety has been mediocre (although it can have some impressive antidepressant-augmenting effects for some people -- but only with serotonergic antidepressants, not with Wellbutrin, desipramine, etc.).
