The Tardive Dyskinesia Update

ALL SYMPTOMS ARE COMPLETELY GONE! My doctor said he has never heard of a reaction as severe as I had to the amitryptaline. I asked him if we can try my friend David's suggestion, filling it as name brand Elavil in the hopes that all side effects would dissapear. Dr. W. said that would be fine. And of all the crazy things (I'm sure my friend Arlene, a pharmacist, probably already knows this!) I went to fill the Elavil prescription and was told that the drug is no longer manufactured! That's a first. Well, cest la vie. The t.d. symptoms were terrifying and I'm just so grateful that they are completely gone!
