I know I've been pushing it lately, but Aricept has had some mentions in books that go akathisia, saying it worked in a few cases where it was tried on a patient, but that it hasn't been studied for akathisia.
So you don't need to go to amphetamine if you take aricept. Baclofen wouod likely work just as well, although I don't quite know anything about that drug. To me, aricept is safer, because it's been tried in so many people before...
I'm glad to hear you're doing better. If you're taking Inderal, I need 40mg-- 20 mg is what they gave me in the hospital, and it didn't work. But since I went off Effexor two months ago, Inderal doesn't work at all for some reason-- only amphetamine works. And even that, lately, seems to be working less (although it works). Hmmf.
What's that herb that has been studies for akathisia? I've heard good things.

> mood goes down with gabapentin, which lowers anxiety. so is my low mood related to the gabapentin, or is it that once the anxiety lowers my true mood comes out??
