I am sorry and dont understand exactly your problem. You are changing atenolol to propranolol because of "specific" social anxiety, but actually take atenolol for heart arrythmia? -Do you go to a cardiologist and a psychiatrist. If you have an arrythmia I would better ask the cardiologist, before you change something. Stopping or changing betablockers in some cases of arrythmia could lead to death.
Ask your doc or better cardiologist.

> My pdoc wants to change my beta blocker from atenolol to propranolol for social anxiety. She says that atenolol is not as effective.
> I am also tapering off of xanax 1.5mg. The reason I take atenolol is a heart arrythmia, not anxiety! Any thoughts, please? TY
