netsavy006 Posted October 30, 2010 Share Posted October 30, 2010 I notice that I have as the Abilify website puts it "inner sense of restlessness or need to move" and I am moving around more often than I was before inpatient. I'm trying to manage it the best I can because I don't want to think about akathisia as I've tried medications for it with failure (Cogentin, Artane, Inderal, Benadryl, Valium, Klonopin, Xanax, Niravam). The only medication that's even moderately help before inpatient was Ativan but I don't want to increase my dosage for akathisia like symptoms, especially since I can't be sure if it's the start of akathisia. I have no way to get in contact with my pdoc (because I don't have his number or secretary's) and I don't see him till this Wednesday. I can't just take extra pills to get through it because then I'd run out of Ativan too quickly and wouldn't be able to fill my next prescription before the appropriate times. I don't highly think it's the AAPs as they have a low EPS rate, but something is making me more restless for the past 2 days so I'd like to know can something other than the medications make you more restless, because I don't feel anxious or depressed right now. Thanks for helping me, Andy. P.S. ETA: I'm not looking to medicate this problem, but looking for non-medication things I may be able to do to help myself. Thanks.
