Discussions that mention cogentin

Bipolar Disorder board

I was given Elavil over 30 yrs ago. First my arms started drawing up & into my body. Then my legs. Then my head turned to the right and I couldn't move it back.
They gave me cogentin to counteract that side effect with my body...
Turns out that I really just needed a good mood stabilizer since I was Bipolar and that was my main problem.
