Whey protein isolate


Does anyone have experience with whey protein isolate?   I'm experiencing akathisia after tapering wrongly from mirtazapine (I updosed when I shouldn't have to 1.68 mg).  Before I read the warnings here about Point of Care products I spent $100 buying their whey protein isolate.   Just wondering if it would be calming to my akathisia or too stimulating?

Does anyone have experience with that with akathisia?
