Akathisia is back

I stopped the propranolol due to it causing bad diarrhea. Now I have relief from that but I also have the akathisia back…

The only two medicines I’ve ever been prescribed for akathisia were propranalol and benztropine. You might want to look into benztropine. Personally I’d take diarrhea over akathisia but that’s just me.

Why not switch ap? I had akathisia on Latuda but not on Risperdal. Thers other partial dopamine agonists too, Rexulti and Vraylar, I think Caplyta too.

The diarrhea was quite severe and I was extremely dehydrated because of it

I’ll have to talk to my pdoc about it during our next meeting

Yeah my only way out of akathisia was trying different APs at low doses until I found Zyprexa and lowered it to 7.5mg. I had horrible akathisia for like a year from this or that AP up until then.
