From this study (2 months ago):
I've been taking Latuda for about two months, and slowly increasing the dosage. I recently developed akathesia from the Latuda. The propranolol is very effective for that.I take the Trazadone very seldom and only as needed for sleep. I take the Xanax as needed for anxiety. I cannot say for certain yet, but it looks like the Propranolol may decrease my anxiety level to such a point that the Xanax may become far less necessary.
From this study (3 months ago):
I am worried I will get encephalopathy or go into a comatose state, I also have Hep.C and I carry an auto immune gene from my mother's side of the family. I am Hypothyroid and that is also a cause.
