    Default Drug induced parkinsons

    Has anyone everexperienced drug induced parkinsons? Shuffling walk/ stooped posture/ postural instability/ rigidity by taking psychiatric drug especially antipsychotic?

    I got this after withdrawal from antipsychotic seroquel. It is much better now and now that it is 1 1/2 yrs since i quit, sometimes it goes and somtiems it comes back. Does anyone know how long it takes to recover? Has anyone been through this?

    Anyone experienced nerve impairment?

    I have never personally had this condition but I do know that it's not as uncommon as one might think. Drug induced Parkinsons is more common with the elderly than with younger people just like the disease itself is more common in the elderly.

    It does concern me that your problem is still present after 1 1/2 years being off the seroquel. Usually it doesn't take this long to improve following terminating the drug use. There is tons of information available doing a simple Google search. Hopefully someone will come along with more information than what I personally have to offer.

    Have you talked with your dr about this? Probably a dumb question, I would imagine you have after a such a long period of time. What does your dr say about it? I would be very interested in hearing any medical opinions you have received concerning this condition. Good luck and God bless.
