I am horrified at the amount of suffering endured by so many of you due to akathisia, which is a very common side effect of all antipsychotic meds and other psych and non-psych meds. Unfortunately it is underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed by the prescriber. The good news is that there is a very safe and cheap medication that almost immediately can get rid of akathisia. The treatment is a low dose of propranolol, which is a very old and common treatment for hypertension. Everyone who might have akathisia should google "akathisia propranolol." There are excellent simple and short articles written by doctors. If you want your doctor to prescribe you propranolol, you should take copies of the articles to your doctor. Good luck.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
