Anyone else experience facial paralyasis or bells palsy type symptoms from meds?


Recommended Posts

Hello Crazyboards forum,

I was wondering if anyone has experienced facial paralysis or bells palsy type symptoms caused by meds?  I know that tardive dyskinesia can be a side effect but I am not sure about facial paralysis and nerve disorders.  What about facial twitching?  I am not talking about tardive dyskinesia, tremors, ticks, grimmaces, tongue movements and things like that...I am talking about a part of one's face literally twitching.

Abilify has listed as an infrequent side effect (1/100 to 1/1000) facial palsy.

Really?  I was on the Abilify website last night and I scoured through the entire "full prescribing information"/"boxed warning"/"medication guide" page and I did not see it there.  I am not denying that what you say is true, I'm just saying that I didn't see it on their website where they listed all of the potential side effects.  Where did you find that information?

By "PI" do you mean "Prescribing Information"?  I thoroughly checked this section of the website again and I didn't see it.  What page number did you see it on?

Pull up the web page and press ctl+f it will bring up a search box, type palsy and hit enter.

Still nothing, although I was able to pull up other things.  Is it under those exact words "Facial Palsy" or "Palsy"? because I found nothing.  But when I typed in certain keywords, it did bring up the tardive dyskinesia related stuff.

Oh okay, I thought you meant the official Abilify website because that was what I was on.
