Have had full body dyskinesia caused by SSRI according to Neurologist. Have been on Clonidine for 2 years - Neuro suggested it in hope as similary to Tourettes although female in late 20-s so not Tourettes. Clonidine really helped to control things for 2 years. However, now stopped working completely back to Square 1. Is there any other drug treatment (Neuro suggested Deep Brain Stimulation possibly) which helps with severe dyskinesia - caused by reaction to SSRI?
I sympathize with your situation but don't know about exact treatments used for this condition. Your only option is to get all the information from the specialists/doctors treating you. All the best.
