All of the medicines you are taking can cause the movement disorder tardive dyskinesia. The Cogetin is something they give you to stop uncontrollable muscle movements. I would tell the pdoc you are having break through symptoms. Best of luck

From Drugs.com:

Benadryl is also used to suppress coughs, to treat motion sickness, to induce sleep, and to treat mild forms of Parkinson's disease.

When I ran out of Cogentin I had a shrink that told me to use Benadryl until I could get in to get my prescription and to the pharmacy. If I were having the same symptoms I would put in a call to my pdoc.
