Lorazepam 4mg one put me to sleep until the effect was gone OF COURSE I stopped the AP (Stellazine 2mg) the same day and never looked back ...

Yes , Akathisia is the WORST side effect I've ever experienced in my life...I could not sit or stand and walked and walked + severe dysphoria...I looked like totally a mad person..I will never ever approach APs for my problems (anxities/depression)
