Gabapentin/Pregabalin good for the treatment of akathisia (my anecdotal evidence)

Either med completely gets rid of my akathisia. In a much cleaner way than kemadrin or cogentin. Suppose this is why benzos are sometimes given for movement tics.

The bonus is gabapentin isn’t supposed to be addictive (although you may get withdrawals if you stop abruptly)


i take gabapentin and it helps a lot with anxiety

Oh I found I got a bit paranoid so I put the meds back up again. Thanks for asking though!
