Beta-blockers in Berlin

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone living in Berlin had experience getting prescribed beta-blockers - either for anxiety or for arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)?

 

I'd be interested to know how the assessment procedure for each might be different: for instance, before prescribing BBs as a treatment for arrhythmia, would a German doctor insist on clinical cardio testing? If it were for anxiety, would a consultation with a psychologist suffice?

 

While I respect individual opinions and preferences for one form of treatment over another, it's direct experiences with the system (if there are any out there) that I'm hoping to hear about.

 

thanks in advance.

Any reputable Physician will want to run tests before prescribing Beta Blockers.

 

I'm sure they would, and for good reasons. What I'd like to know is how extensive those tests might be - particularly the cardio ones, and how these compare with the tests for anxiety.
