I -had- fairly mild stiff gait before DIY Orthomolecular...now, my big problem is that I kinda feel...altered, I guess (?). kind of...tranquilized, but also mildly stimulated...what is reality, anyway? i need abilify I think...

Abilify caused MASSIVE akathisia with me. One of my clients at the group home I worked at when I was on it, made me very empathetic when he said being on the stuff felt like his mind was trying to eat him. (In retrospect I chuckle a bit at that...but really, I deeply empathize, and am surprised I made it through and past) Again...YMMV and all that. I'd also try Lyrica over Neurontin...way smoother and way more effective. I have been on Lyrica for about 10 years, with only modest dose increases, and still keeps things just as smooth and spiffy! Also, for myself, anyhow, we pushed my Prozac dose up to 80mg, and eventually barely needed benzos or anything else. Best wishes..

Jay
