I walked over 9 miles today!

I walked over 9 miles today! - way over 2 hours! according to my tracking device on my smartphone.

Got to talk to my pdoc again, it seems like the Risperdal is still giving me Akathisia and Agitation even when I lowered the dose to my current dose of 2.5 mg!

I am getting tired of this crap - its getting old and tiresome - she needs to know that the Risperdal is the source of my increased Agitation and Anxiety/OCD - Thank goodness I did not raise the Risperdal dose even higher like she told me to do.

I see my pdoc in like 3 more days, hope I can make it till then!


9 miles. Cool. That would be a impressive distance even for someone in their teens or early twenties. Good luck on toughing out the three days.

Well done! I used to get bad akathisia with Modecate - changed to Olanzapine and I’m OK now.

Good of you to be in tune with body and senses. Hop they get it figured out. Long life to you wave.

Would Benadryl ease the Akathisia? I know that it reduces some side effects of ap’s like tremors.

I think that it sometimes helps, the problem is that I am super sensitive to meds - Benedryl has knocked me out in the past- hopefully I can make it and see her in a couple of days - I have Klonopin just in case


Goooood Mooooon -

How did you manage to walk 9 miles? An exercise walk?

Walking in my House, believe it or not, throughout the day - outside in the neighborhood also

Awesome! Keep up the exercise daily without pushing yourself too hard!

Do you have stairs in your house?

It’s one floor living

Thats great I currently work a job where I walk a lot and im thinking about tracking my mileage to see just how much I walk.

May I advise that you keep up the good work? and make sure that you have good shoes.

Walking up hills is good when you feel you can do it.

It’s good that you’re walking. I tried to do no impact aerobics but the wood floor started creaking.

Sounds like you are walking off the agitation and anxiety. Maybe try adding some calm to your day with a herbal remedy. At least the walking is healthy though two hours plus might be a lot. Hope the medication gets sorted…
