> Hi Ritch. You helped me tremedously. I had a feeling this wasn't akathesia. I truly believe the answer to what I am feeling is rebound anxiety to the receptors being unoccupied from stopping the Seroquel. I didn't know what terms to put that in but it fits quite well. And the feeling is TENSE (I liked the caps.) Not akathesia but tenseness.
> I believe my brain will adjust. I hope it is days and not weeks but I can deal with it if I know what to call it. I'll discuss this with my pdoc, but I know that answer fits. It is just encouraging to know it does improve over time. One gets frightened that maybe this will last forever, especially when right in the middle of it. I also tried Benadryl and it didn't help the tenseness which just confirms my belief about it being DA receptors having to adjust. I'll talk to him about the Ativan possibility.
> Thanks for responding. Have a great weekend.

I think it will probably be just days, not weeks so don't get discouraged. The rebound anxiety I experienced the most was when low-dose Stelazine wore off the next day and when I stopped low-dose Mellaril. It was the worst just a couple of days afterwards and then it got better.
