See doctor: You are likely having side effects from an antipsychotic med that should be evaluated without delay by a psychiatrist. Antipsychotic meds should be used for serious psychiatric disorders only. Medication for side effects may help; but be sure to be seen in person at urgent care if you can't reach prescribing doctor right away. I hope this helps and you feel better soon.
