Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • This is a recent development after having been on these drugs for years, with the exception of the cefepime antibiotic. Recently added the ativan to help with the nervousness and shaking. Was in hospital for 10 days for surgery for a pseudomonaeus infection in leg and a rehab facility for 20 days after that, and then the shaking started.
