In reply to stiff and sore muscles, posted by FredPotter on August 11, 2005, at 15:52:03

Hi Fred,

Could be a mild form of Parkinsonism due to the Zyprexa. Try reducing the dose if possible. If not, add an anticholinergic (eg. procyclidine) and see if it helps.

Common symptoms of antipsychotic-induced Parkinsonism include..... muscle stiffness/rigidity, a feeling of discomfort in the muscles, tremor, slowness of movement and difficulty initiating movement.

Kind regards

~Ed
