Default Taking Propranolol with Sertraline - a good idea or not?

Hey sorry if this seems like a silly question but it's something I'm not sure about.

I've just started taking Sertraline and am also taking Propranolol which I'm continuing to take as normal, although I read a post on another forum that the two can interract and cause confusion and worsen depression.

I think it's common when you go on Sertraline from what I've read, but I feel very shaky and restless and kind of like I was feeling before I went on the Propranolol and don't know whether it's safe to take a higher dose to try and help this (as I usually do when I'm particularly bad) or whether it's not such a good idea to be taking them.

Wondered if anyone has any experience of mixing the two drugs and has any answers?

I've been taking both for around a year now, with no significant problems (other than the common side-effects of such medications, which lessen over time). If you're thinking of changing doses, it would be best if you sought advice from your GP beforehand, however difficult you might find that.
