Sažetak

Akathisia is a syndrome characterized by the unpleasant sensation of “inner” restlessness that manifests itself in the inability of
sitting still or not moving. Many types of medicaments can cause akathisia as an adverse event of their use and they include:
antipsychotics, antidepressants, antiemetics, antihistamines, and psychoactive substances.
We will present the case of a 50 year old patient, treated on two occasions for psychotic depression. During the second
hospitalization it is possible that antipsychotic treatment combined with an antidepressant caused akathisia or there were symptoms
of agitated depression and akathisia present at the same time, which is very difficult to determine in everyday clinical practice.
We can conclude that in this case, as in many others, akathisia as a possible adverse effect of psychopharmacs was very hard to
identify. Therefore, it is necessary to have akathisia in mind when using certain medicaments, especially when combining several
that use the same enzymatic system and consequently raise levels of at least one of them.
