dystonia or too much norepinephrine

Posted by poser938 on September 1, 2012, at 22:27:21

so i have has a seemingly permanent twitch in my facial muscles since 2007 when i took effexor. it started a few days after i went to 150mgs and has been stuck with me ever since. i am no stranger to the effects of medications sticking with me, though.

anyways my facial muscles between my eyes used to only flex/ tense up when i felt a bit of stress but after a while it got to where it just stays flexed. though it decreases or increases in intensity at times and feels a little painful sometimes.
anyway, i mentiones this to my psychiatrist and she said this is a problem with too much norepinephrine. for so long now i figured it was a problem with super sensitive dopamine receptors.

i believe i have dystonia or tardive dyskinesia (i dont know the difference between the two) from effexor. and i know when a medication raises serotonin this causes a decrease in dopamine neurotransmission which cann lead to a sensitized dopammine system. couldnt it possibly have "super-sensitized" my dopammine recptors?
