Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness and Akathisia

A recent RxISK.org article explores treatment-induced Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD). Improving our understanding of PPPD, which is associated with SSRIs, “may shed light on akathisia, a lethal ‘emotional’ effect” associated with SSRIs. In many cases dizziness coincided with suicidal agitation.”

If you think you might have PPPD, submit a report at RxISK.org to increase our understanding of PPPD and akathisia. For more information about PPPD, see https://rxisk.org/balancing-our-bodies-and-our-selves/ and the associated links included in the article.
