Do You Suffer From CyclophobiaTweet
What is Cyclophobia?
Fear of bicycles.
Beta-blockers produce fewer side effects and have proved effective in some phobic patients in relieving the physical symptoms of 'performance' and social anxiety. They do not appear to be helpful in treating panic symptoms.
One of the main areas of concern is that all of these drugs are potent chemical agents which can cause side effects and, in some cases, dependency and withdrawal symptoms. A second area of concern, in addition to those discussed above, is the risk of relapse or the return of intense phobic symptoms once medication is discontinued.
