For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “Absolutely the ONLY way I can take Latuda (life saving me for me) is by taking three small doses of Cogentin a day. I had excruciating muscle pain, a strange kind of dizziness, brain fog, and restlessness. I thought it could be some presentation of akasthisia. It was unbearable until I started Cogentin. Wonder if those with side effects are prescribed too high of a dose. I'm taking half of the .5 pill three times a day.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “It helped me a lot with akathisia.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “After 2 days of taking this I got blurred vision.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “Currently taking 1mg two times a day, but considering taking 1mg at bedtime since I have side effects like brain fog. Hopefully it will stop the restlessness that is caused by Risperdal.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “This medicine worked. Took my akathesia away the moment I took it.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “I took this for the side effects from seroquel This drug made me disoriented, confused, and forgetful. It also didn't help with my side effects.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “I have just started this medicine, 100mg, to help my tremors. (head to toe). I take 2 a day. So far, it is working. Even with the increase of mgs.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “After taking Cogentin for 2 to 3 weeks I've been having a hard time urinating. Abdominal pain.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “I simply won’t take my latuda without cogentin. The akathisia is too unbearable but with cogentin it is not there! so it works great”
