Amphetamines, and CNS stimulants in general, are contraindicted if you have a known hypersensitivity or idiosyncrasy to them. Further, doctors normally don't prescribe them if you appear agitated or extremely anxious, because they can often worsen your condition. I'm only speculating, but I would think docs reserve meds like Dexedrine and Adderall for patients with ADD/ADHD or narcolepsy, as they are highly addictive and widely abused.

You said you're on 1mg of a beta adrenergic blocker. I take 100mg of Atenolol and 20mg of Prinivil, an ACE inhibitor, every day. I can't imagine 1mg doing much unless it's a potent beta blocker, or a sugar pill. Well, as it is commonly written here as an acronym, YMMV. Stick with whatever works.
