Abilify had the least akathisia for me.

clozapine has the least EPS - including akathisia - of any antipsychotic. Haldol has the most


I tried Abilify pills 25mg for 8 years.

clozapine does not cause any EPS side effects, while other antipsychotics cause dose dependent EPS side effects. [1]

I get bad akathisia on haldol now. I used only tiny doses of meds for 2.5 years or so?? I relapsed after mum died and a “friend” said/did some creepy stuff about demons. Im back on 2.5mg haldol and have a lot of eps for the first time. I wonder if i should change meds. I cant tolerate abilify or zyprexa.

why can’t you tolerate abilify?

latuda caused me a lot of inability to sit an stand still and panic and anxiety attacks. but i may have been taking too much o it.

How many mg? 120mg caused me severe akathisia (restless), 80mg occasional akathisia preventing me from sleep. I just switched to risperdal.


I read it in a scientific journal

The haldol injection I’m on doesn’t give me any but the haldol pills I’m on do.

If I don’t take my cogentin then I’m in hell.
