Well, the unfortunate fact of the matter is that the akathisia
side effect isn't manageable for
me.... Yesterday, I had to use
a hefty dose of benzos just to calm down. And believe me, I don't like takin
g my PRN benzos. I had to take ALL of my PRN medications (in
the correct dosages) to fin
ally get back to normal. The akathisia also manifests itself with a bad manic episode as well; this combin
ation has sent me to the hospital three times.
