Myoclonus from Neurontin
| anonymouse
Absolutely have this in the hours following my nighttime dose of Neurontin. It took a bit of getting used to. I liken it to an occasional quick twitch, usually in my right arm. One other twitch I noticed was a weird, quick sensation as though someone tapped me on the shoulder or my neck. It happened while I was lying in bed so I know it was just a weird nerve twitch. Nothing to be alarmed about, however it is a common side effect of the medication.
