Thanks for the post! How are you now?
Tremors and shakiness are the side effects of both lithium and Prozac. Excess of caffeine too causes muscle twitching. In your case that could be the cause. No it is not related to Lyme’s disease. Self medication should not be done. Especially in your case when you are on a combination of medication.
Hope it helps! Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Well, it was not the Lithium that caused the twitching, as I had a Lithium level drawn after stopping it and the Vyvanse, and my level was a little bit low, indicating that it had probably been at normal levels just a day or two before. Now I have a script for Concerta to replace the Vyvanse, I am just waiting on insurance's prior authorization. I am still on the Prozac and am back on Abilify. The twitching slowly subsided, as did the eye pain, nausea, and dizziness. Before it stopped, however, in addition to the twitching, I was making noises that I was not intending to make, I was just uttering monosyllabic sounds for no reason. It was a little bit scary. I am now worried that since the Lithium was most likely not the culprit, I am worried that if once I start up on the Concerta (which I have been on before with no problems), if the tics return, I will have to go without a stimulant at all, as that's an option my perscriber mentioned if they start back up again. I am usually a tired person overall, but after this episode of tics, I have been so very, very, exhausted and have been missing classes and sleeping much more. It's almost as if the tic episode wiped me out, I feel a marked difference in my energy level since this has happened. I do not feel that my extra tiredness is because I stopped the Vyvanse and am still waiting on the Concerta, because I used to be able to at least wake up in the morning, and get going before taking the Vyvanse, but now I am struggling to even get up in the morning. Oh well, I'll try my best to get on with my days.
