My pdoc wrote me a prescription today so things should be sorted out now.
Not suicidal thoughts but a bout of akathisia just after I started consta kicked of highly irrational thoughts. I got really fearful centering round my washing machine. Started washing my clothes in the bath instead. That kicked off not changing my clothes much because I got paranoid about using the washing machine too much in case it broke and a new one had to be fitted.
I remember you mentioning your washing machine before.
Akathisia is different than restless legs. Akathisia is the inability to sit still. It’s like a brain itch you get whenever you’re not walking. So essentially while sitting still or trying to lay down you go insane… all of which can be cured if you just keep walking. In circles if you have to.
Restless legs is just twitchy legs that are somewhat annoying. I’ve had that, it’s a lot tamer.
My akathisia seems a bit better tonight. This is without starting the cogentin. Hopefully it might get better on its own
@everhopeful I have been drinking tea today - do you think l theanine could help akathisia?
It’s worth a go if you’ve got nothing else. It sounds pretty severe though.
Oh am picking up procyclidine tomorrow. But tonight after 3 cups of tea it has improved considerably on its own
That’s strange. Maybe your system is just getting used to the depot? It’s good that you’re getting something for it tomorrow in case it gets worse again though.
Totally. My new nurse sorted everything out this afternoon. She is a total pro.
