Guarana to help alleviate a fear of public speaking?
suppose you can take this anecdotally, it works for me and that’s the only evidence i have. i’m now trying to figure a schedule to consume Guarana 400mg to go along with my daily nootropics. by shear dumb luck after my San Diego AirBnb fellow roommate Greig handed me a few OTC supplements of Guarana, i discovered Guarana 400mg in particular helps to me to overcome a fear of public speaking. however, as a developer happy to be introvert, Guarana 400mg helped to deliver progress on daily morning team scrum meetings. Guarana at 200mg was barely below threshold. i’m on a vigil for some neuroscience news to back this up 🙂 but for now i’m running with it.
Inderal (as Propranolol)
wow! things have changed the past decade when the only suggestions were typified by the response of a friend co-worker professor “take a shot of vodka” – i did just this on one contract site and it almost cost me the job from a performance hit especially as daily scrum meeting are early morning. a Google search for “medication fear public speaking” popped-out Inderal as a top forum favorite.
Propranolol (beta blocker) works great, has very little potential for abuse, is safe, and is inexpensive in the generic form. I use it a couple of times per year when I have to give a presentation. Works like a charm for me. Atenolol is another option and is very similar to Propranolol. I would stay away from benzodiazepines (such as Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, and Librium). posted by alex1965 at 8:41 AM on June 18, 2016 [2 favorites]
