I am a 30 year old man. I am suffering from mitral valve prolapse and mild regurgitation. You take propranolol 40 mg to treat my anxiety symptoms, shortness of breath, dizziness etc. The problem is that I have hiatal hernia in stomach also. I am facing severe shortness of breath from last 2 days and after every 2 seconds I feel" air hunger" and lack of oxygen. I'm taking long breaths from abdomen and this puts a tension or effort in my stomach muscles. Now, I took duolin levosalbutamol nebulizer solution but still not much relief. Now, please let me, what should I do? Will my propranolol interact with levosalbutamol?

Propranol will increase symtoms of asthma. Your breathlessness is less likly due to asthma. Get PFT to confirm.Breathlessness can b edue to mitral regurge/hiatus

People with mvps and Mr. have commonly anxiety and you might need an ssri for the same. Consulting a psychiatrist would surely help, rather than taking propanolol alone. All th best.
