Has anyone had this happen? I had gone up from the 20mg dose to the 40mg dose and was doing better. Less depression and the goal was to ease my fibro pain (I currently take Gabapentin and Tramadol) and eventually stop taking Tramadol. I suddenly started shaking. I had muscle jumps (can't think of another way to describe it) in my legs and I literally shook so bad I couldn't turn pages on my Kindle without trying a few times. It was disturbing.
The doctor called me back said to go back to the 20mb dose. I continued to shake...but it lessened. I am now going off it by taking it every other day (20mb) and can't get the Dr. to return my call.
I have tried all the Fibro drugs. Lyrica didn't work. Savella caused bad rapid h/b. Effexor caused muscle jumps in my legs too (but not hand shaking).
If I continued to take it would the hand tremors go away? No one can answer that. Pain is worse since I have eased off so it was actually working. I want to continue if it will lesson, but I don't know if it will.
