    Risperidone causing Akathisia and failure to stop it

    Hi all
    I am suffering from OCD since sometime ago, my Pdoc added Resperidone to my combo, It caused me Akathisia and is not helping with myOCD
    I agreed with the doc that we shall stop it, he says it can be done cold turkey, but what I read in the web that antipsychoticscan’t only be stopped gradually
    I started decreasing my 1 mg dose in 2 month I reached 0.25mg, I started feeling unpleasent feelings like increase of Anxiety ocd hi in the sky, when I raised back the dose to 1 mg I started feeling good but the akathisia is back
    Anybody has succeeded in stopping antipsychotics with another plan ?
