Pam, I'm not familiar with this drug and can't seem to find it in my drug information. I checked out two websites and couldn't find it listed. Is this the generic name or the brand name? Looks like the generic name. Maybe someone else will know about it or have more current information than I do.

I just typed in tetrabenazine and got several sites with useful information. From what I've read some doctors are having some success in the use of this drug for respiratory dyskenesia and a marked improvement was shown in patients with other dystonias. I know there is a doctor at Johns Hopkins who uses it and Dr. Jankovic also posted a study that he did with the tetrabenazine. It is not manufactured in the U.S. Interesting and encouraging reading!!
