Akathisia

Did you know that Buspar, the anti-anxiety medication, can stop akathisia in its tracks?  I have learned this only in the last two and one-half weeks of taking 5 mg. of Buspar twice a day (one half pill when I get up, one half-pill at 2:30 p.m.).  No longer do I wake up at night and have to get out of bed because of the restlessness.  I can just lie still and drift back off to sleep.  A godsend, and this is something that I have never found on the web despite intensive searching.
