Propranolol is a miracle drug and what I'd call the consulting industry's steroids. Helps with performance anxiety and stage fright. Perfect thing to manage the pressure with presenting in front of people.

If you're having serious issues just see your doctor. It's their job to figure out what's best for you.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Try yoga, I've taken Klonipin...

I used to take some natural supplements for anxiety... Tryptophan, GABA, tyrosine. They def help for more mild issues. Now I take Prozac and finally feel back to normal

Body weight exercises (pull ups, sit ups, stuff you can do in your room), sex and healthy eating.

Adderall, almost goes with out saying
