View Full Version : Anything besides Cogentin? (for restlessness from Abilify)

07-09-08, 12:30 PM
Three times I tried Abilify. All three times, I liked how it made me feel. However, each time I took it I got restlessness. Each time I was taking Abilify with Cogentin. Cogentin even at 2mg/day doesn't seem to help with the restlessness.

I tried taking more than 2mg/day but it makes my eyes bloodshot and produces (at least for me) a "drugged" feeling.

I've tried benzodiazapines in the past and they never "agreed" with me. Klonopin made me suicidal, Xanax increased the restlessness and Ativan did nothing for the restlessness.

What I'd like to know is are there any other medications besides Cogentin that I can take to help prevent restlessness from Abilify?
