Marvin, beta blockers are used to TREAT the physical symptoms of anxiety (like an elevated heart rate, dry mouth, shakiness,/tremors. Many musicians take them before a major performance or audition, and they are often prescribed to individuals with social phobias. In people with heart disease they reduce the risk of sudden death. I hope you consulted your physician before halving your dose.
