It must be very difficult for you to post here. Thinking back to my brief experience with acute akathisia I couldn't even be still for a second. Everything was impossible, I wouldn't have been able to make a 20 second phone call never mind write a post on babble. Acute akathisia was an experience of complete helplessness, torture really. Every minute felt like an hour. I thought it would never stop. Textbook descriptions of akathisia are usually very poor. They're just not vivid enough. They make it sound so trivial.
>If I recall it has 5HT2 antagonism and also benefits sleep architecutre.I'd probably try even lower perhaps. I know the higher doses NE kicks in and akathisia can be an issue.
That's right. Low doses may be beneficial for acute AP-induced akathisia.
Which med will you try next Dave?
