Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
Since you have opted out on the previous expert , so i shall be answering your query.
Well, although you have muscle tension , and shake arms uncomfortably , but you did not loose consciousness , nor did you bite your tongue or frothing from your mouth was seen and no voiding of urine was seen also, so since all these features were absent , which are typical of a seizure episode , so this rules out a seizure episode.
So, the muscle tensions and the shaking that you are suffering from are probably due to the Extrapyramidal side effects of the 2 anti psychotics -- abilify and seroquel which you are using at the same ,mainly seroquel ( quetiapine )is responsible and this makes you more vulnerable to such Extrapyramidal side effects ( EPS )
kINDLY SEE THE LINK BELOW...
So i suggest that you shall consult your doctor and ask him to start you on an anti cholinergic drug such as trihexyphenidyl , which is used to treat such Antipsychotic EPS ad at the same time , lower the dose of seroquel , while continuing on abilify ..in the same dose
I hope this helps..
I wish you all the best..
