Hmm- thanks for telling me about the provigil effect on cerebellum control of coordinated mvmts.

That's really interesting-- I wonder if it acts on the same cerebellar system that is compromised under alcohol intoxication.

Is "ataxia" a symptom of alcohol intoxication? I'm trying to learn more about the exact meaning of what a neurologist / neuropsychologist / psychiatrist would consider "ataxia".

I did have a lovely experience a few years ago (before I ever took psych drugs) of middle ear problems that caused extreme vertigo (and of course a lot of stumbling/falling/discoordination. But it was mainly affecting my ability to walk and remain oriented relative to gravity. Even when my vestibular system was 90% compromised, I don't recall my fine motor skills seeming poor. (I was still playing in the orchestra at this point, so it couldn't have been THAT bad!)

apologies that I have nothing substantial to add regarding klonopin. I may feel ever so slightly off balance, but it's nothing compared to sleep deficit or even the mildest of alcohol intoxication. AND I've never had an attack like zeugma describes of acute wooziness. I've been feeling like that a lot, but I think it's more related to hypoglycemia and my body getting adjusted to 300mg of seroquel (which messes with bloodpressure when standing and also blood sugar).
