> Cogentin's a long-acting med. After the first few days, it probably won't make a great deal of difference what time of day you take it. Personally, I'd stick with a fairly low dose. Best of luck!

Hey ed, wikipedia lists the half-life of Cogentin as 12-24 hours .. I'm a bit confused, because people most commonly seem to be dosing b.i.d.

I read it acts as a DRI at the 'nerve terminals', and have no idea what that means; but I've actually noticed some psychoactive effects that I thought might be consistent with a DRI .. namely, I've been hyperfocusing far more, my obsessive thoughts are much 'louder' and distracting, and my sleep is disturbed (I take it at 6pm and find it calming for about 3 hours, before stimulation takes over) though I'm still alert and focused during the day. I feel less 'stressed'.

The akathisia is better, and my jaw has loosened up, but it's been replaced by a different kind of anxiety/overstimulation.

Anyway, this is day 5, so I wasn't sure if blood levels have stabilized yet. Anyway, I'm seeing a new doctor at a private practice tomorrow -- more expensive, but better care, I imagine -- so hopefully they have some ideas.
