EPS med - Artane(trihexyphenidyl) cognitive decline?


Recommended Posts

Inderal treats EPS and does not eat up acetylene so it is less likely the blur the eyes or give you cognitivetive issues. EPS covers a wide level of symptoms, there is not just one anticolog effect. To help you we need to know which form of EPS you have. I get fine, fast tremors for which I take Inderal ER 60 mg. At this dose we are way below the common heart pressure and pulse that Inderal is known for. Since you are on Adderall your pulse may lower some.

Have you ever had a AIMS test ? Everyone who takes an AP/AAP should. It will show if TD and other movement disorders caused by the antipsychotics are likely. It might buy some time so you can stop an AP/AAP before these movements are permanent.

added "are likely" so it makes sense.

I'm taking artane for risperidone induced EPS side effects. Im not worried about akathisia cuz i already take a benzo. I'm worried if i get pseudoparkinsonism if i increase my risperidone dose.

But i will take max 1mg risperidone and i dont think it will cause EPS at this dose.

I will stop artane after being on 1 week of risperidone 1mg. Last year when i took risperidone 1mg, i didnt had any EPS side effects. I hope i dont get them this time.
