The quickest solution to test-taking anxiety is to take a medication right before your test that will calm you without sedating you excessively or making you forget what you've studied to pass your test. This disorder is called Social Anxiety Disorder
(formerly called Social Phobia
). If it truly occurs only as performance anxiety prior to tests/exams, then a medication like a benzodiazepine
such as alprazolam or lorazepam may be your best bet at low dose of course. Alternatively a beta-blocker (used for high blood pressure
and heart disease, but quite effective for spot anxiety) may be helpful too, such as propranolol, also taken at low dose. I hope this helps you. Consult your primary care doctor or a psychiatrist
to get help with this debilitating problem. Best of health to you!
