There are many meds that can cause Dystonic reactions, and we should avoid all of these!! Lipitor, Lyrica, Spironolactone and Ambilify should also be in the list. Even if a drug is not on the no-no list, look up the side effects on the internet. If you see side effects such as muscle spasms, muscle tightness, muscle crapming, muscle twitching, etc., that’s a major red flag.

Dopamine antagonists which are generally used to treat psychotic disorders and have been reported to make dystonia worse, should be used with caution. They include phenothiazine, haloperidol, tetrabenazine and pimozide. These drugs are usually avoided in the treatment of one with dystonia due to the potential to worsen dystonia. It is important that the doctor prescribing these types of drugs be familiar with dystonia.

Both all SSRIs and SNRI’s must be avoided!
Serotonin-­‐norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs)
• Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq), active metabolite of venlafaxine.
• Duloxetine (Cymbalta)
• Levomilnacipran (Fetzima)
• Milnacipran (Ixel, Savella)
• Venlafaxine (Effexor)
Tramadol (Tramal, Ultram) and Sibutramine (Meridia, Reductil) are also SNRIs and may be included in this class.
