the herky jerky and other spastic movements

I weaned off one drug and am now taking another.  I've moved into the second phase and have one more increase and then we'll set at this level for a month or two.  While I am happy about this, I am encountering a slight oddity.

My left hand tremors, quivers, shakes, and shimmies.  It doesn't do it all the time.  But it looks like I'm having selective withdrawals or something.  It will most likely fade, as I get used to the medication.

That's what They say, anyway.


  1. Isn't it weird that the side effects of the meds that are supposed to be helping us actually cause more discomfort or symptoms than not? I hope your body adjusts quicky to the change. Hang in there.....


  2. Is it also used as an antiseizure?
