Has anyone found themselves rocking a little bit while on medication?
I'm not talking about air guitar in your underwear...although that is awesome...and I'm guilty of that as well. =) :rock:

Third week on Vimpat and boosted up to 100mg and I'm noticing a bit more space out and a little rocking back and forth. Hmmm...think I'll ask the doc if I can hang out at this level for a time. Treatment shouldn't be worse than the condition.

Anyway, hope everyone is well. =)
i got that alot on tegretol, alot of hair pulling nail bitting the bit of rocking crazy paranoid feeling

hope it gets better for ya!
Thanks!! It's really minor right now. I'm just thinking if I go up to the 200mg the doctor wants, it might get worse. We shall see. ::dramatic music:: Dun-dun-duuuunnnn.

I know the rocking you mean, I am now on 200mg of vimpat and it seems to have stopped although I did notice it once or twice since.
I'm always wiggling a leg up and down really fast. Sort of like I'm tapping my foot but I don't let my heel hit the ground.

I don't know if that could be from one of the meds I'm on or it's just me.
I get that too sometimes and it's unsettling. I'm on Lamictal XR.
They upped my Vimpat when they discharged me, and I have definitely noticed some equilibrium issues--especially in the mornings. The first week, for about 1.5 hours or so after dosing in the AM, I couldn't stand up without holding on to something. They spread out my doses a little more since then, so I'm not that bad anymore, but it still definitely gives me sea legs.
