ehygon Posted September 20, 2008 Share Posted September 20, 2008 I started taking zyprexa at 10mg in addition to risperdal/wellbutrin/ativan. The last two nights, I woke up after about 3 hours sleep, super agitated, and absolutely starving. I picked up some benadryl after the first night, but it didn't help the second night. I have read descriptions of it enough times to know this is akathisia. It's not earth shattering uncomfortable, but it's definitely not something I will tolerate long term. So my question is, does akathisia go away on its own over time? or will it stay the same/get worse? I don't think you can get cogentin in canada, so I bought benadryl. I only took 1 last night with the rest of my pills, should I have taken more? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
