Do you take fish oil? Lol, I'm always pushing the fish oil. I just think it can really improve brain function and maybe improve efficacy of medications.

Other things to consider:

Magnesium-glycinate or taurinate-may help your dystonia
Glycine-2 to 3 grams at night for sleep
Glutamine-may relieve anxiety and clear your mind
Holy Basil(New Chapter's)-calming, uplifting, may improve adrenal function-I'm thinking this won't aggravate dystonia
Cordyceps-improve energy and well being during the day, may also decrease anxiety and improve mood, promotes healthy immune system
Schisandra-great for the liver, may improve energy and mood, works on adrenals, not a ginseng

These are just things that have worked for me, thought I'd share them with you.

Well hopefully things begin to improve with Seroquel. If they don't, Zyprexa may be worth giving a try.

Does exercise and stretching improve the dystonia? Have you looked into any alternative treatments? Do you believe all the people that say avoiding toxins, avoiding gluten, avoiding refined sugar/fructose and eating organic foods can help with dystonia? I'm thinking anything that helps the brain heal and improves brain function may alleviate symptoms of dystonia. That's why magnesium, fish oil, and moderate exercise and meditative stretching would be good additions to your regimen. I'm also thinking a high dose of sublingual methyl B12 and a low dose of lithium orotate(Vitamin Research Products may have the highest quality lithium orotate) may be worth looking into for neuroprotection-which would hopefully help prevent worsening of symptoms through maintain brain health/function.

Sorry to hear about having such bad luck with Prozac and it causing your dystonia. What a nightmare.
