Post Head Jerk could it be?

I am in my late forties and about the past 6-7 months I have noticed about 4-5 times a week I can just be sitting still and my head will jerk a couple of times to one side involuntarily. I have mital valve prolaspe and am on 80mg. of Inderol per day which drops my BP pretty low. I have been on it for 6 years. Could the head twitching be from my medication or could it be PD? All answers appreciated. Thanks!

Since you are already on meds, there certainly is a chance that this is some sort of side effect. All drugs have side effects.
Some slight - some severe. You should be able to access the Pharmaceutical Company that makes the drug on the internet. -OR-
search by the drug name itself. I'm sure you'll find plenty.

Is it PD related? No one on this board is really capable of answering that. It would be best to consult with your doctor and let them guide you.
Hope this helps. Good Luck

Bernie, I don't mean to offend, but how do you know what I am capable of?

My husband has been on Inderal for over 20yrs.The side effect for him is dizzeness.We just cut back one pill.At the time he first took this he weighed 20 lbs more.His head does bob also amongst many other things.Your Dr. is the one to see.

Best of luck,
