ABSTRACT: Olanzapine is an atypical antipsychotic drug that infrequently has been reported to cause seizures and myoclonus despite a small proconvulsant risk. This is the first report of generalized myoclonus induced in a patient who had been maintained on low dose olanzapine for over seven years without any change in her dose. Olanzapine was discontinued, and the myoclonic jerks completely resolved within 48 h.Epilepsy research 12/2011; 98(2-3):247-50. · 2.48 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: A 56-year-old man with diabetes, hypertension, and chronic kidney disease presented to the emergency room with a complaint of pain in his right foot. He was found to have tremors. Gabapentin toxicity was suspected and the patient was found to have high gabapentin level (6.3 mcg/ml). Patient was commenced on continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration (CVVHD) and the pharmacokinetics of gabapentin was studied. The patient improved symptomatically and his tremors subsided. In this case report, we describe the successful management of gabapentin toxicity with continuous renal replacement therapy and calculate the clearance of gabapentin which will enable future treatment of gabapentin toxicity by CVVHD.Indian Journal of Nephrology 01/2012; 22(1):59-61.
