Are you referring to PTSD that you had pre-psychiatric drugs, or post psychiatric drugs?

 

If it is for pre-drugs, then you might get more information joining a PTSD specific forum, facebook or support group.

Are you still on the 5mg from last August in your sig, Miko789?

 

Bad driving can be very triggering.  One of the best things to work on with (C/)PTSD is settling your limbic system more quickly and easily, and being able to tell quickly when you have been triggered.

 

Can confirm there are occasions when a word with another driver is in order, but obviously it can be quite dangerous to engage if you aren't both on the calmer side.

Miko can you please do us a favour and list all your drug changes since Aug 2021 in your signature?

Probably dopamine related especially after dosage changes.  Similar triggers to akathisia etc.

Exercise, Yoga, meditation, deep breaths, grounding, hugs, talking to your pets, just a few e.g.s of many

Hi

you mean due to dopamine decrease? due to zyprexa,

The drug blocks the dopamine receptors (among others), so as you come off it your body will need to get used to those receiving more dopamine.  

In any case my experience is that akathisia is much more likely to show up from significant changes to dopamine levels in either direction.  Or even drinking/recreational drugs.

 

Cortisol might also be related to your twitches.  Many of us notice these cortisol spikes in the early morning.
