Akineton Side Effects
Stop taking haldol (haloperidol) 5 mg a day after a month an half of taking it and continuing taking akineton 2mg at day can avoid the withdrawal effects of haldol (haloperidol)?
Akathesia: Alathesia can be a b****, that's for sure. Have you tried Cogentin or artane? Sometimes, diffetent ones work better. I will go as high as 2mgs three times/day of Cogentin (benztropine), if needed. Of course, benztropine has side effects too. A little benedryl can help.

Drugs that block or increase activity of either one can cause movement issues. Talk to your doctor(s) ...Read more
