Akathisia Stories Podcast Features Kim Witczak

In episode 4 of Akathisia Stories, we hear from international drug safety advocate, Kim Witczak, who discusses the akathisia-induced death of her late husband, Woody, and her subsequent advocacy.
“Woody took the three-week sample pack, did what the doctor said – you know, take week one, week two,” says Kim, who was out of the country on a business trip when Woody started taking Zoloft as prescribed. When Kim came home, she saw Woody drenched with sweat. “He dropped his briefcase at the backdoor; went into a fetal position on our kitchen floor with his hands wrapped around his head like a vice, going: ‘Help me, Kim; help me. I don’t know what’s happening to me. It’s like my head’s outside my body looking in.’”
