Hey Ed,

That's the way I'm leaning right now. It's nice to have somone confirm that decision. I'm going to first cut down the Geodon from (20 mg x 2) to (10 mg x 2) and see if things improve. If I still feel the akathisia business, I'll d/c entirely.

I think I'm pretty susceptible to akathisia from the D-2 blockade. I've had similar reactions to BuSpar and all three of the AAPs I've tried. Also, given that I'd like to quit smoking at some point, D-2 antagonism seems counterproductive.
