“This trihexyphenidyl has been very helpful at 2mg dose to improve the akathisia I get from ziprasidone but it sometimes causes loss of short term memory”

“I was taking lowest possible dose and after 4 yrs on the (1) daily dose was diagnosed with Short term memory loss-early onset dementia. Mayo Clinic was finally able to determine (after 2 other neurologists) that the cause was this medication. 6 months of being of it now and memory is fine/normal.”

“I was prescribed this medication after I started to twitch on the left side of my body from my toes to my face because of Abilify. I was prescribed 5mg a day and it caused extreme short term memory loss and clumsiness. After a few weeks taking it I started to get sick to my stomach and get a horrible headache. Now I take a quarter of a 5 mg tablet as needed and my doctor reduced my Abilify from 15mg to 2mg and I'm doing much better.”

Including, but not limited to tremor, akathisia-(inability to sit still or restlessness) upwardly fixed stare, psuedo-parkinsonism, shuffling gait, akinesia. 1 mg usually suffices to start. No serious side effects noted. Some sensitivity to bright light/accommodation to heat related conditions including dry mouth.”
