    Hi. Help. Scared. In addition to the fibro/cfs I have dysautonomia. I'm so highly sensitive to drugs that the smallest amt of anything gives me a reaction. I've been having tons of instability with my b/p and heart rate. Today my pressure was extremely high in the morning with my pulse up to 128. Now my dr. thinks it time to go back beta blockers and this time he wants me to take 2.5mg of Pindolol. Now, I already suffer from anxiety/depression and two of the side effects are anxiety/depression.

    Has anyone taken Pindolol with good results? I have been on Atenolol in the past, corgard, and metoprolol all baby doses.

    I already get the chest pain and I read up on the side effects of the pindolol and it doesn't sound too great.

    Please let me know what your exeperiences have been.

    Thank you!
