Well, cogentin is THE thing to take for antipsychotic induced diskinesias, akathisisa and movement abnormalities. It works great on akathisia. I heard that somewhere too, that Cogentin and Kemadrin can give you TD. Well... there are always risks when taking a medication. Its a question of weighing the pros and cons. I keep cogentin only for times when I am on more antipsychotics than usual. Do not take it and would not like to take it daily. Maybe you can keep your cogentin PRN and take it only when you have symptoms.
so tell me why my doc just gave me a script for cogentin to help stop TD???
Just my humble opinion,

dx: schizotypal personality disorder, dystonic neck and back pain, GERD. a bit of TD, akathisia, dysmorphic thoughts, affect is questionable
seroquel and inderal 60mg made me fatigued/ depressed. may hafta try lopressor or bisoprolol
inderal interacts with ssris and anti-psychs.
success HCTZ not only lowers my blood pressure and pulse more effectively. but it also has helped with the headaches ive been having. i should see a doctor about this.
[color="#0000FF"]rx: klonopin .5-1 prn, omega 3 fish oil, vitamin D3 iu, albuterol sulfate inhaler, magnesium hydroxide(for the constipationg)
in flux: seroquel 50mg
up and coming: nuvigil
looking into injectables.
artane 2 mg PRN(rare), trazodone 50mg PRN, lyrica PRN?
