This is probably in the wrong forum. I appologize in advance if so.
My question is about Akathisia. I am pretty sure I have this (although not diagnosed, never brought up either). I constantly have to stretch my biceps, clinch my jaw/neck crack stretch all my limbs, and ankles. I believe (after researching) this is what I have.
I am prescribed Diazepam 5mg TID, a benzodiazepine. Along with research it is been read that Clonazepam is a treatment for Akathisia (which is obviously another benzodiazepine). I have a doctors appointment soon, whom prescribes me the valium and I was wondering if it would be appropriate to bring this up to him and suggest the switch to this benzo from the valium. The valium is for my spasms (which it works great). The GABA action I get from it must be good due to my lack there of spasms, I hope Klonopin does the same. I hope this is enough information, I just want to know if this would be the correct step to take. Thank you in advance.
