  • Cilastatin-Imipenem

    Notify physician if focal tremors, myoclonus, or seizures occur; dosage adjustment may be needed. Monitor for S&S of superinfection (see Appendix F).[robholland.com] If focal tremors, myoclonus, or seizures occur, patients should be evaluated neurologically and placed on anticonvulsant therapy if not already instituted.[medicines.org.uk] tremor, taste perversion Very rare aggravation of myasthenia gravis, headache Not Known agitation dyskinesia Ear and labyrinth disorders Rare hearing loss Very rare vertigo[medicines.org.uk]

    The case is presented of a 6-month-old girl with theophylline-induced focal seizures associated with tachycardia, tremor and irritability.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alpers Syndrome

    Other signs included ataxia, visual disturbance, motor paresis, and tremor. Myoclonic and focal motor seizures were common, often manifesting as status epilepticus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Writer's Cramp

    Four patients with primary writing tremor had a focal, task-specific tremor that responded to anticholinergic drugs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Writer's cramp is frequently associated with hand tremor and with other focal dystonias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Rosenbaum F, Jankovic J: Focal task-specific tremor and dystonia: categorization of occupational movement disorders.

  • Hemiballismus

    Hyperkinetic movement disorders after stroke comprise dystonia (2-4), chorea with or without hemiballismus (5), tremor (6), parkinsonism (7), segmental or focal myoclonus,[rjn.com.ro]

  • Movement Disorder

    The characteristics of this tremor appear to be distinguishable from the features of both essential tremor and focal dystonia; comparison is made with representative string[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ), tremors, Huntington's Chorea, tic disorders and psychogenic movements.[ufhealthjax.org] […] and generalized dystonia, tremor, myoclonus, tic disorders, restless legs syndrome, blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm.[med.unc.edu]

  • Focal Task Specific Dystonia

    We conclude that focal tremor and focal dystonia are related to generalized essential tremor and generalized dystonia.[neurology.org] Five years after the onset of focal dystonia, she developed an intention tremor in her right hand and upper limb ataxia but with a normal gait.[jnnp.bmj.com] Some patients may experience tremors with the muscle spasms.[empowher.com]
