I was going to suggest Cogentin too but to me it has more atropine qualities than Artane. Others may react differently.

Its unfortunate that Akineton was discontinued. It had much less of that and I found it useful.

Dimenhydrinate (Dramamine I) is a related salt of diphenydramine.

The closeness to each other makes me question that, it is 1/2 the strength of Benadryl, which can also be used for sea-sickness.

(Of course so can Dramamine II, meclizine) and is less drowsy. Anyhow this isn't about seasickness. I'm not sure if meclizine can help in akathisia.


If I were to have a choice between an anticholinergic and propranolol, I'd choose the latter, it feels much less .... well, belladonna yuck. Just my 2c.
