Urbanol

Hi Prof
Thanks for replying to previous questions. I''ve read your comments about using Urbanol to easily and I''m quite concerned now.
I''ve always been anxious and nervous because of my upbringing etc. Long story for another day. Been for counselling etc over the years and I thought I was o.k but since I had a heartattack (2years ago)with double bypass etc. with detoriating health( 3 stents since) I''ve been put on Lezamil20mg and Urbanol 10mg x3. Am seeing a psychiatrist, I''m just wondering in my situation is using Urbanol that bad? It helps me calm down especially after having a bad day like having angina and pain. Your comments will be appreciated.

Try not to get too anxious about being anxious ! Or about its treatment. Discuss your situation with your psychiatrist. Where one has heart problems, for instance, though specifically CBT counselling would be very helpful ( more vague "counselling " might not be as effective ) one does indeed need to be cautious about the choice of drugs, as some otherwise useful drugs can have adverse cardiac effects in some circumstances. The Urbanol may indeed be helping you - discuss this with your psychiatrist who is presumably keeping an eye on this.
Its easy to get into a vicious cyctme, of getting anxious about anything, with this leading to angina, which makes you more anxious, and so on.
