Get a hold on extrapyramidal symptoms
When drug-induced extrapyramidal symptoms begin, start Akineton® Tablets. Akineton can provide early control of extrapyramidal reactions, often without reduction in dosage or discontinuance of the psychotropic agent. The efficacy of Akineton, usually at low daily dosages, has been demonstrated in more than a decade of clinical experience. With Akineton, anticholingergic side effects are minimal.
