> Can you return to your doctor soon? I still think diazepam and metoprolol could be beneficial as a temporary measure. I do not entirely understand the logical behind prescribing the very hydrophilic atenolol, which is known for its reduced effects on the central nervous system. You should try it though.

I guess some GPs might not know which beta-blockers are specifically indicated for akathisia, and I couldn't recall if atenolol was suitable or not. I things aren't better by next Friday, and the lower dose of cogentin doesn't help, I'll make another appointment.

It was too late to start the cogentin this afternoon so I caved and bought a codeine/paracetemol mix. It helped quite significantly, of course, and eased anxiety/depression to boot, but I'm aware of course that it shouldn't be used regularly.

> As far as distractions, have you watched any comedy clips on YouTube? Brief and funny, you don't have to concentrate much or stay still for long.

Yes, that's kind of what I've been doing anyway. Which comedians do you like?
