Hawkins: Researcher and taking meds for nerve pain


Recommended Posts

I have been a member since 2019 . I was put on amitriptyline for nerve pain and clonazapine for sleep caused by the pain . After 4 years the amitriptyline caused severe dystonia and I was tapered off amitriptyline( but not slow enough) and yanked off clonazepam to be placed on Valium for ticks of dystonia .


The result of withdrawing of antidepressants,  crashing off of clonazepam and introduced to Valium almost aused me to died. I had every sever reaction to every drug at once . I could not eat because of nausea and went down to 103 lbs and lost all muscle control n could not walk or use tongue to speak. And yet the doctors had no idea it was the meds and kept giving me more ...it was hell on earth.


I am now back looking for posts on remeron which they are giving my mom w on set dementia and it's making her worse.

It's difficult to counsel third parties, you'll probably have to convince your mother's doctors to slowly reduce her dosage.
