    Iím on the patch but I do have pills so could try that approach. It scares me so much after the insane redness of cold turkey going off them, but it could work if I was verrrry slow.

    I tried propranolol several times. Every time, it made me flush more in this kind of patchy redness. I felt calmer but the redness was definitely worse. I feel I have tried it enough times (maybe 5?)...
