In brief: Akathisia restless
Restlessness might have occurred before use of anti-psychotics as being part of the syndrome of mental disease, along with anxiety, high state of alertness, hi iritability.
. Akathisia is when muscles twitch and legs just want to move beyond your own will, making you want to keep on walking or shaking legs.
