Propranolol is often prescribed to younger people with exam-related performance anxiety. Evidence for effect as well as safety is, however, sparse for this non-approved indication. Furthermore, only relatively large pack sizes are available in Denmark. This may spur an unnecessary, permanent overuse and increase the risk of overdosing and poisoning. The aim of this review is to examine the evidence for the effect as well as safety of propranolol for exam-related performance anxiety and to discuss, whether the use of this drug for this unapproved indication is rational.
