are you pacing and frequently feel urgency with particularly physical restlessness that makes your skin or limbs feel like they can't get rid of energy? bruxism? does your face feel like it needs to stretch and you can't stop wincing or your noticing your face want to climb into rigid non-rest positions when idle?

anything like this and i'd worry about akathisia and doctors i doubt have gotten any better about recognising it or wanting to. they'll make decisions around it, like add meds like cogentin or up your benzos, but it's not really spoken plainly about. this sounds very cynical, but i don't know what else to say. ssri side effects have been taboo since the healy affair.

if you're on an antipsychotic with little reason given and you don't normally think about, or for sleep, this likely increases risk as the drug class is even more formally linked to these problems.
