Random akathisia stuff. Akathisia is a movement disorder and a form of EPS. I looked to make sure none of these had been posted before, but I could have missed one. In no particular order:

 

Ann Clin Psychiatry. 2010 Aug;22(3):148-56.

Extrapyramidal symptoms associated with antidepressants--a review of the literature and an analysis of spontaneous reports.

Madhusoodanan S(1), Alexeenko L, Sanders R, Brenner R.

 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20680187

 

"EPS have been reported with different classes of antidepressants, are not dose related, and can develop with short-term or long-term use."

 

Ann Pharmacother. 1998 Jun;32(6):692-8.

Selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitor-induced movement disorders.

Gerber PE(1), Lynd LD.

SSRIs can cause other movement disorders other than akathisia.

 

J Clin Psychiatry. 1992 Nov;53(11):401-6.

Akathisia, suicidality, and fluoxetine.

Hamilton MS(1), Opler LA.

"We propose a syndrome which we name Extrapyramidal-Induced Dysphoric Reactions, one extreme manifestation of which is the emergence of suicidal ideation."

 

Oh boy. In 1992.

April / 2016: Cipralex 10 mg, Mirtazapine 30 mg, Lyrica 600 mg, Diazepam 20 mg, Bystolic 5 mg

2018: Lots of polypharmacy which is undocumented here. Started and stopped several drugs and changed doses of existing ones

August / 2018: Back on track! Cipralex 15 mg, Mirtazapine 7.5 mg, Diazepam 15 mg

September 2018: Cipralex 15 mg -> 12.5 mg

October 2018: Cipralex 12.5 mg -> 10 mg, Mirtazapine 7.5 mg -> 3.75 mg -> Stopped, Diazepam 15 mg
