During my chemotherapy 18 years ago, I suffered from akathasia. I could walk and lie down, but not sit. I thought this was normal during such a treatment. Years later, when I looked more closely at psychiatry and its drugs, I realized what had happened to me. So I think that akathisia is not only a consequence of psychotropic drugs, but also of other neurotoxins, which include the cytostatics. Perhaps cancer patients think exactly as I did that these are all “normal consequences” of the treatment. An oncologist told me at that time that cytostatics destroy hair cells and nerve cells and perhaps…..the cancer cells.
