Akathisia is a complex syndrome that is characterized by subjective inner restlessness and objective motor manifestations, and it can be classified into several subtypes. The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of subjective akathisia, objective akathisia, and mixed akathisia, and to evaluate their relationships with other drug-induced movement disorders, in chronic schizophrenic subjects treated with antipsychotics. One hundred and forty-two in-patients were assessed for… Expand
Multidimensional Sensory Phenomena in Antipsychotic-Induced Akathisia
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that the sensory phenomena of antipsychotic-induced akathisia are characterized by multidimensional features such as bodily sensations, mental sensations, and several autonomic sensations. Expand
Case Report: Changes in Regional Cerebral Blood Flow in Chronic Akathisia of a Depressed Patient Before and After Electroconvulsive Therapy Treatment
TLDR
ECT is suggested as a beneficial treatment for chronic akathisia and altered rCBF in the middle frontal gyrus, parietal lobe, thalamus, fusiform Gyrus, and cerebellum, and especially decreased rCBf in the parietal frontal lobe, may be related to the pathophysiology of chronic akATHisia. Expand
Vitamin B6 Versus Mianserin and Placebo in Acute Neuroleptic-induced Akathisia: A Randomized, Double-blind, Controlled Study
TLDR
The results indicate that high doses of B6 and a low dose of mianserin may be a useful addition to current treatments of NIA and suggests that the pathophysiology of acute NIA is heterogeneous with the various subtypes of acuteNIA responding differently to the various pharmacological approaches. Expand
Liverpool University Neuroleptic Side‐Effect Rating Scale (LUNSERS) as a subjective measure of drug‐induced parkinsonism and akathisia
TLDR
The results suggest that the EPS and psychic side‐effect subscales of LUNSERS may be useful in screening for drug‐induced parkinsonism and akathisia. Expand
Trazodone for the Treatment of Neuroleptic-Induced Acute Akathisia: A Placebo-Controlled, Double-Blind, Crossover Study
TLDR
It is suggested that Trz's property of serotonin 2A postsynaptic receptor antagonism may be its principal mechanism for the improvement of NIA. Expand
Vitamin B6 treatment in acute neuroleptic-induced akathisia: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study.
TLDR
Preliminary results indicate that high doses of vitamin B6 may be useful additions to the available treatments for NIA, perhaps due to its combined effects on various neurotransmitter systems. Expand
Drug-induced parkinsonism.
TLDR
Drug-induced Parkinsonism (DIP) is one of the most frequent but poorly recognized disorder and is frequently indistinguishable from idiopathic PD which results from the blockade of striatal dopamine receptors. Expand
Drug-induced tardive motor syndromes.
TLDR
The aim of this article is to review the phenomenology, epidemiology and treatment options of the TMS, as clinically distinct movement disorders, as well as some specific Syndromes less often presented such as Pisa, Meige and Rabbit syndromes. Expand
Antagonism of the adenosine A2A receptor attenuates akathisia-like behavior induced with MP-10 or aripiprazole in a novel non-human primate model
TLDR
This work represents the first NHP measurement scale of akathisia and demonstrates that NHPs are responsive to akath isia-inducing agents, providing further evidence of the utility of A2A receptor antagonists for the treatment of antipsychotic-induced movement disorders. Expand
Altered heart rate dynamics associated with antipsychotic-induced subjective restlessness in patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
It is indicated that antipsychotic-induced subjective restlessness is associated with altered heart rate dynamics parameters, particularly the nonlinear complexity measure, suggesting that it might adversely affect autonomic neurocardiac integrity. Expand

Akathisia variants and tardive dyskinesia.
TLDR
The findings suggested a possible relationship between pseudoakathisia, orofacial and limb dyskinesia, and the severity of negative schizophrenic symptoms. Expand
Akathisia: prevalence and associated dysphoria in an in-patient population with chronic schizophrenia.
TLDR
The findings support the suggestion that dysphoric mood is an important feature of akathisia and that male patients appeared to be at an increased risk of pseudoakath isia. Expand
Clinical characteristics and associated factors in antipsychotic-induced akathisia of Asian patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
The findings of an overlap between TD and EPSE support the suggestion that there may be a common vulnerability for these movement disorders and suggest an inter-ethnic difference in the vulnerability for the development of akathisia. Expand
Clinical characteristics and predisposing factors in acute drug-induced akathisia.
TLDR
The most significant predisposing factors were the extrapyramidal side effects score and current neuroleptic dose and its rate of increment, with lesser contributions from serum iron status and medication type. Expand
The prevalence of tardive dystonia, tardive dyskinesia, parkinsonism and akathisia The Curaçao extrapyramidal syndromes study: I
TLDR
The prevalence of tardive dystonia was higher than reported in most other studies and extrapyramidal syndromes are very common in this predominantly Negroid population, with three out of four patients suffering of one or more extrapyramsides. Expand
Subjective emotional experience and cognitive impairment in drug-induced akathisia.
TLDR
It is suggested that akathisia is significantly associated with depressive symptoms and attentional impairment, which reflects the complex nature of akath isia that includes motor, emotional, and cognitive aspects. Expand
Akathisia in Parkinson's disease

TLDR
The presence of akathisia was associated with the severity and age of onset of PD, and symptoms most frequently affected the legs, and associated movements were suppressible for brief periods. Expand
Extrapyramidal syndromes in neuroleptic-treated patients: prevalence, risk factors, and association with tardive dyskinesia.
TLDR
It is suggested that the association between EPS and TD may be limited to specific subtypes of TD, and peripheral TD showed a higher association with parkinsonism and with akathisia, suggesting that these symptoms may share a common pathophysiology. Expand
Does akathisia influence psychopathology in psychotic patients treated with clozapine?
TLDR
Although the presence of akathisia predicted more severe symptoms, the level of akATHisia did not covary across time with severity of psychopathology, suggesting an "uncoupling" of these symptom domains. Expand
The Nithsdale schizophrenia surveys. IX: Akathisia, parkinsonism, tardive dyskinesia and plasma neuroleptic levels.
TLDR
Plasma neuroleptic levels at the time of clinical assessment were low; the ratio of mean plasma concentration to mean dose was greatest with fluphenazine decanoate and lowest for sulpiride, and the concentration:dose ratio was higher in the elderly. Expand
