ClinicalTrials.gov NCT02427646.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In some of these cases, patients have dystonic posturing of the limb in conjunction with tremor, or focal dystonia with dystonic tremor.[neurosurgery.nm.org]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    Neurological CNS ischemia, infarction, or hemorrhage may be manifested as focal neurologic deficits.[calsprogram.org] They are usually brief and self-limited.6 Tremor, hyperreflexia, choreoathetoid movements, and bruxism (tooth grinding) are common and are thought to arise from alteration[calsprogram.org]
