Deanxit (Flupenthixol+melitracen) and Ciplar (Propranalol) should not be abruptly stopped. Deanxit can cause palpitations as its side effect whereas propranolol produces slow heart rate or bradycardia as a side effect.Stopping ciplar abruptly may cause tachycardia(fast heart rate). Please taper the medications under guidance of your treating doctor.

And for treatment of your anxiety a Selective Serotonin reuptake inhibitor may be tried.If you dont want to take any medications Cognitive Behaviour therapy may be a good option. Discuss it with your doctor or a psychiatrist.

Hope this helps and good luck with your job.
