I have taken this medication for TD caused by Haldol. The side effects where extremely bad. I could not read, it made everything blury. My mouth was really dry. I think it made me more paraniod than when I was off all medications. I don't know but I think the cogentin also caused me to get something similar restless leg syndrome while I was on it because I couldn't quit moving my legs at bed time. Cogentin did unfreeze my body like it should. The medicine(for me) is good for emergencies like TD on occasion but I won't never take it regularly again.

Comment from: Be of good cheer!, 45-54 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: March 22

Each day I've noticed gradual improvement by taking Cogentin 1mg twice a day. I'm after ~ 10 days of Cogentin, and counting, already realizing a major difference in self confidence to actually try certain tasks of which I for some time avoided. I hope to improve even more concerning relief from tremor. Have a great day!

I took cogentin a few years ago to counteract side effects from a neuroleptic (EPS). Soon I was falling asleep all the time while driving, unable to speak in a complete sentence, and apparently raving about nonexistent missiles in Japan. I can't even remember most of what happened during that period of time. When I saw my doctor and couldn't communicate with him at all either by speaking or writing, he had to hospitalize me to get me stabilized and to change my medications.
