> Since you've only been on it for a few days, I'd try to stick with it for another week because there is a good chance the restlessness will subside. Taking some diphenhydramine could help but it can make you tired.

I can't afford another week with this symptom. It will totally destroy all the plans I've made. Even tonight's dinner plans with my family and a class Monday night. And I start a new job on Oct 14. If I have akathisia then, I will lose the job. Period.

I'd go to a doctor for something like cogentin but there just isn't someone I can see in a timely fashion, as it is the weekend.

I had akathisia with Risperdal and Depakote in the past and it only went away when I stopped those drugs. I'm feeling like a coward now and wanting to just stop the ziprasidone.

Much as I hate the thought of staying on Seroquel over the long-term (have already gained a lot of weight), at least I can function mentally and emotionally on Seroquel, and this akathisia is unbearable.
