In reply to AP Akathisia ... does it go away?? Amant. helpful?, posted by cache-monkey on July 15, 2005, at 13:42:05

amant. is kind of popular for akathisia...the old-school, tried-and-true (and CHEAP) remedies are: dipenhydramine (Benadryl in the US; 25-50mgs as needed), propranolol, and benzodiazpenes (ativan and klonopin seem to be pretty popular). Cogentin is used for some EPS as well. Speaking from personal experience, akathisia doesn't really "go away" with add on meds. I mean, I personally felt better, but I still had moments of total and complete inner-torment. Once, on Seroquel, I couldnt stop moving about and I started crying my eyes out. It was awful, simply awful.
