      One month ago I got a sudden onset of palatal myoclonus because of Amoxicillin (within an hour of taking it). So now, the twitching is still here, and I have been prescribed Clonazepam. I hope it helps.

      Has anyone tried Clonazepam for myoclonus? I'm not sure how well it works for stapedial/middle ear myoclonus.

      Thank you.
      Hope everyone is coping well.

      Did the Clonazepam help your palatal myoclonus?

      I have taken it for cramping tensor tympani and it worked very well but with diminishing effect over time.

      It didn't. I went to a different neurologist and she prescribed Etifoxine. I hope it helps. Thank you for asking @annV.

      Hope you are well. :)

      Aaand, the Etifoxine is not working either.
      I'm going to the neurologist tomorrow.

      Hello everyone. I just wanted to give a quick update:
      I have been put on Baclofen (a muscle relaxant) and it IS controlling the myoclonus. It has considerably subsided, but the movement was so strong to begin with, it is not gone yet. I hope it will be eventually.

      Thank you, hope everyone is doing well.
