From this study (7 days ago):
Aricept does not seem to help at all, complains of legs being tired and weak. Will try to wean off
From this study (1 month ago):
I noticed the small light brown blotches on my lower legs the beginning of April. No itching or raised skin. The Amantadine is the newest medication. I think it has been approximately 6+ months.
From this study (2 months ago):
After one year of being on Cymbalta to help with pain and depression, it did not do the job it should have. Instead for almost a year I went thru horrible pain, myoclonis, and rythmic body jerking lasting anywhere from 30 min up to 3 times a day to 6 hours or more a day and sometimes waking up with this jerking.. Went to hospital 2 times. My doctor said all this was from anxiety. My neurologist said the rythmic shaking was essential Tremor. I was unable to travel on family vacations and it caused pain and stress and we didn't know if I might start rolling around on the floor with by body on fire and horrid head pain. My neurologist answer was the shaking was due to Essential Tremor. And myoclonis was due to medicine reaction. I didn't have the myoclonis until the last 3 months of the year and was taken off Cymbalta last month.
Marshellette on May, 21, 2014:
I took this drug, Vistaril for a month, 100mg. I stopped it suddenly. For a month now I have been going through myoclonus and shaking and having shoulder, limb and hand shakes. I look like I have cerebral palsy. I also took Zyprexa. For insomnia.
