I picked some up based on feedback on some threads here and talking to some of the people I have a great amount of admiration for their ability to speak in large groups. I had 3 very high profile meetings with groups ranging from 20-100 people today, all at the executive level over the last two days so I decided to take 20mg yesterday and today.
All I can say is that this is hands down the closest thing to fabled NZT that I have ever experienced. Thoughts come rapidly, you place them exactly where they need to go, and you present in a manner unlike anything ever experienced. I handled a 45 min Q+A like I was talking to 5 year olds, on topics I generally have little in-depth knowledge of, but I was able to pull from what I know and talk about it like an expert. My mind was and still is (10 hours later) firing on all cylinders and I just want to go talk to people about...anything.
Never in my professional career have I felt more comfortable and on-point speaking to a group of people. This stuff is the most incredible thing I may have ever taken for memory, speech, and confidence.

I've thought about giving that a try. My mom and brother are both on it for anxiety and essential tremor. Any affect on mood?

Yes, it was very alpha and it lifted my mood, but didn’t necessarily make me feel happy. It just made me feel very calm and confident. I normally am that way, but this is much more. Lasted about 10 hours and no sides in the 2 days.
It will be sparingly that I use it. I think for really special times where you just have to nail it, this would be perfect.

So glad to hear it worked for you! It's been a life-saver for me on many occassions.

I am prescribed atenolol for the same reason which is also a beta blocker. Works like a charm!
The first time I used it was before a presentation in college. My instructor told me it was the best presentation of anyone else in the class. A year or two after, we crossed paths where I work. She tried to recruit me to join the faculty as she said I was a natural at teaching. I declined the offer because I would have had to go back to school to qualify for the position. I already have 8 years of college behind my belt so I am done with that! I digress..
Point being, nothing is better than beta blockers for presentation anxiety...

I used to get red in the face, speak way too rapidly and lose my breath. Heart racing, sweating...you name it...
It’s an awful feeling. I used to dread presentations for months ahead of time when I knew one was coming up. Now I know I can handle it with ease and I don’t obsess over it. It’s a lifesaver!

Much like Aniracetam, which is my go to speech noot. The anxiolytic property is why you take it. On a 1-10 scale I would put Ani at a 6-7 which is great for someone like myself that doesn’t have high anxiety, but wants an edge in these situations. Propranolol is an 11 on that scale. You could address the nation naked and not care. It’s special.

"Mean SAT scores with beta-blockade were 130 points higher than on the initial SAT done before entering the study without medication (p = less than .01). A single dose of propranolol immediately before the SAT permitted improved performance in students prone to cognitive dysfunction due to test anxiety."
In one study it boosted SAT scores 130 points! Every healthy kid should consider taking this to max their scores.

Improved problem solving in some studies.
"normal subjects undertook three problem solving tasks (number series, shape manipulation and anagrams) 45 min after propranolol, placebo and ephedrine. On the task that appeared to rely most heavily on cognitive flexibility (anagrams), subjects who were most able to solve these problems demonstrated significantly shorter solution times (logarithmic scores) after propranolol than after ephedrine. This suggested that the noradrenergic system exerts a modulatory effect on cognitive flexibility in problem solving."

Also, please show me a teenager in the history of forever that is only going to take a pill once that you tell them helps them do something better.

Taking it before major tests I don't see any issue with it. I mean if it's going to make the difference between a passing grade or getting an A don't see any reason not to do so.
I have some right here I should try out. It's really cheap.

It is something you would need a prescription for though.
