From this study (1 day 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.
From this study (2 days ago):
These symptoms started years ago before I took any of those drugs but my cardiologist recently had me stop taking those three and my brain zaps (accompanied with the whirlies and a feeling that I will pass out) have become much worse. I am not withdrawing from any antidepressants but take 20mg Citalopram daily.
