Just want to know if anyone gets the shakes from Serequal?  My hands are shaking so much it's hard to do anything.  Just wondering if this is from the meds or if i'm just nervous.

Hi Star
You need to contact your doctor,according to what I have read it seems to be a common side effect with that med. It can be adjusted by drinking more water ect..but I would not take any chances. At least let them know what is going on...

Also,are you drinking alot of caffeine? I get that way with my meds sometimes,and I have found that if I lay off the soda/coffee then it helps...

I would see a doctor and just get him to double check that everything is ok. It is common but it could be part of an allergic reaction. The other thing I have seen is that peoples blod pressure can drop whilst on Serequol.

Hi Starbrite~
I am not sure of what meds you are on but I will tell you that some meds make you have tremors.  I know for sure that Lithium is the main one to cause mild to excessive tremors in your hands.
On occasion you will experience tremors from low blood sugar due to meds zapping the glucose from your cells.  Either way you should say something to your doctor about it no matter how often or how
strong they are.

I agree with the othere, consult your physician.  It is the safest way when we have uncontrollable side effects and keep posting. We are here.
