Ghuba:

"I infer from your posts that you make your own students aware of beta blockers as an option for improving their performance, or at least for eliminating what you believe is medically-significant performance anxiety.

Should one of your students come back from a physician who has refused to prescribe the drugs because the problem was not deemed medically significant or treatable in that way, what would your reaction be?"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As in every other case involving medicine, seek a second or third opinion...from those doctors that are aware of the literature about performance anxiety. Doctors that are active on the lecture circuit or speak at conventions are usually the ones most likely to know the literature since they take BBlockers themselves if they need them. And those are the doctors that are in the best position of all to understand whether their patient actually needs medication at all.

Actually, the student's tuition includes a substantial amount for student health services. I have not encountered a case in my 25 years of teaching where these services have refused psychological or other services to the student's satisfaction. Perhaps my students are just lucky but I don't think so. It takes a specialised staff of physicians to help those that are at a particularly stressful time in their young adult lives.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ghuba:

"And, do you ever discuss with your students what they should say to a physician when they go in for a diagnosis, or do you merely tell them that they might wish to consult a physician and stop at that? Do you specifically tell them about what you believe the performance benefits of specific drugs are, or do you simply tell them that they should see a doctor for advice on how the problem might be treated?"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I simply ask them if they are at a point that they think they need medical intervention. If they say yes, I advise them to seek out student health services and remind them that they can get the medical advice and attention, psychological and otherwise, that they are already paying for (that motivates them to a great degree in this day and age of medical costs).

If they say no, I ask why not and take a short break to explain what I know about the subject as reflected on this BBoard.
