So Much Brain Fog!!! Lol. (Beta-Blockers?)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced increased brain fog with beta-blockers (propranolol)? For clarification, I am not any more fatigued than usual but can't for the life of me multi-task or pay attention to more than one thing at a time, my short-term memory is terrible and I can't find words/remember names easily at all. I've never really had these issues before but lately they have been bad. I'm not sure if they're associated with the meds or increased symptoms (I had a few days where I was waiting for my beta-blocker to be refilled and my POTS symptoms increased exponentially; much better now with med but brain fog is so bad! Haha).

Hope everyone is doing well!!

I took metoprolol and didn't have this issue (although I had to stop taking it for other reasons. ) Then, I tried propanolol.....I was like a zombie, completely non-functional. I had to stop after a week.

I had a similar reaction to beta blockers (atenolol) I constantly felt like I was in a fog, and it was impossible for me to focus on two things at once. It was like always being in a cloud throughout the day.

The worst is the word-finding and not letting my thoughts be disjointed when I express them verbally. It's so annoying! And noticeable, to the point where my team (I work as a team leader with an Americorps program) and our students have pointed it out. :wacko:

Yea word dropping is a 'normal' problem for me, but I really noticed it when I would be in class answering a question and kind of feeling like I wasn't sure where my thought stream was going, or I would forget a word and just have a quick blank out moment and have to try and talk around it.

Metorpolol so far has help the most with my tacky, not draining me, and helping with brain fog. ( other one listed above I have tried as well didn't do a lot in a positive way)
