Does Artane work for anyone?


Hi all!

Just wondering if anyone here is using Artane for their Cervical Dystonia?

If yes, is it working to stop head pulling & twisting & what is your dose?

I took Artane very early on when I was first diagnosed with cervical dystonia. Yes, it worked, at enormous costs -- It caused GI distress and caused me to just not feel well. But I got relief from the dystonia. I discontinued the Artane after I began a very successful course of on-going Botox injections. Artane is an "old-fashioned" drug. I don't particularly recommend it.
