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

Amantadine will work, but it makes a lot of people feel "loopy". My DA agonist of choice is cabergoline (once daily dosing and superb side effect profile); any D2 agonist should work for akathesia, though.

It's good that your doctor brought up amantadine, though, as the other commonly prescribed [anticholinergic] drugs for akathesia (trihexyphenidyl and benztropine) induce a mild dementia in many people.
