I'm writing a newspaper story about musicians' use of beta blockers. I would like to hear from musicians who have used Inderal for concerts or auditions.
I'm a professional oboist who has played with major orchestras, taken auditions, played a New York debut recital. I have used Inderal and am familiar with its effects, good and bad.
I'm especially interested in issues of psychological dependence (or not), and why musicians who are fairly open backstage are mum about using it to outsiders. (or occasionally to their colleagues,) as well as ethical issues surrounding some musicians having an "advantage" at auditions that others do not.
Also, has anyone had bad experiences from taking too much, mixing it with a contraindicated drug, using without a doctor's supervision (consequences are serious for asthmatics and diabetics), or from buying abroad/online?
You may email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. In case this application blanks out email addresses, that's crimsons-at-hotmail-dot-com.
Thanks very much, and I look forward to your discussions both online and in my email.
