    After 5 weeks on 10mg increased Sunday to 20mg. I have really bad hot sweats on waking (when I do manage to sleep a bit!!) I also have a rash on my arms and back and some trembling in my arms/hands.  Doc just given me propanalol 10mg x 3 daily to help with anxiety. I now have to wait and see if the 20 improves matters.  This is not much fun. What dosage are you on? My name is Linda too!!

      No - bit too early I guess. Feel really spaced today but only day 2 on 20mg. Doc said I would feel worse for a few days and to get back to her in a week if no improvement. Funnily enough yesterday - day 1 - I was hungry and fairly enthusiastic about life - today not good!
