I'm being evaluated for serotonin syndrome by my doc. A few weeks back I developed uncontrollable arm jerks, hand flapping and shoulder movements. When I saw my doc he reduced my fluoxetine dosage from 60 mg at bedtime to 20 mg morning and night. After seeing a vast reduction in the involuntary movements, yesterday he raised my dosage to 20 mg in the morning and 40 mg at bedtime. He told me that if the movements come back I am to call him ASAP and he'd start me on something else. All ready last night I had more arm jerks, but I'm going to give it through the weekend to let it even out in my system. Changing meds would be disastrous for my pain control. Has anyone else dealt with this?
