> The D2 antagonist benefitted me the most I think, but was pretty complex to use: I first observed this as an unintended effect of clomipramine (prescribed for OCD) and then later from the heart medication trimetazidine (which has D2 blocking effects). Both drugs first slightly increased dystonia, followed by gradual drop off symptoms.

Can you babblemail me? I want to know how long you took the ssri and got the dystonia and also about the treatments you took.
