Akathisia has been very poorly researched. It's awful really, that so few have put any effort into studying it. Given that antipsychotics have been around since the 50s the lack of quality reasearch and knowledge of akathisia is a disgrace. Akathisia is one the most important side effects of neuroleptics and to this date, recognition and treatment even of acute akathisia is poor. Tardive akathisia is very poorly researched. There are no well-established treatments. Numerous drugs have been suggested to be possibly effective in the treatment of TA but no firm conclusions can be drawn. Therapy of TA is a matter of trial and error. It's really a case of trying one drug after another until something helps. There are quite a variety of drugs which can be tried.
