Hi, I have been taking these medications together ...

  • Hi, I have been taking these medications together for a number of years due to severe back pain, but within a few months began to suffer myoclonic jerks, which escalated within a few weeks. I have always suffered myoclonic jerks, but they had always been very minor and usually only whilst in bed trying to get to sleep. Even after several months without the medication, the jerks have remained. Doctors contradict themselves, saying in one visit that it isn't possible for this combination of medication to cause this problem, then on the next they'll say it is the medication and that I should stop taking them, then by the next visit they've changed their minds again.

  • You mentioned you had back

    You mentioned you had back pain? Myclonic jerks can come from the spine also. Mine are, I've been told , from alchoholic family, severe abuse and molestation.

    I got severe Myoclonus from lithium and Seroquel (then Tardive Dyskinesia). I'm finally off both of them and while the jerks are way much better but I do still get them. I have found frankincense and marjoram essential oils work. I make up capsules of a couple drops each along with coconut oil and keep them in the frig. I take one or two capsules every evening and also when I have any jerking starting up any other time.
