Bolliewop: father has tardive akathisia


Recommended Posts

I am looking for people suffering from this awful condition. My Father is suffering from this and I need to connect him to others who understand what he is going through, because his doctors do not.

Hi Bolliewop and welcome to SA,


If possible it would be best if you father can join so that we can assist him directly.  Perhaps you might be able to help him set up a membership and explain how the site works.  It is difficult for SA to work through an intermediary.


We need additional information.  Please provide the following information in a post (ie not drug signature at this time):


  • details for last 2 years - dates, ALL drugs, doses
  • summary for older than 2 years - just years and drug/s


If he is taking multiple drugs (including non psychiatric drugs) please put them in the  Drug Interactions Checker   and copy and paste the results here.


Here is SA's topic:  akathisia-vs-restlessness-anxiety-agitation


If you do a google search for survivingantidepressants.org akathisia you can find other members with the same issue.

Please DO NOT TAG me - thank you

PLEASE NOTE:  I am not a medical professional.  I provide information and make suggestions.
