Acyclovir Ataxia Causes and Reviews


When you play the piano or hit a tennis ball you are activating the cerebellum. The cerebellum is the area of the brain that controls coordination and balance. Problems with the cerebellum include

  • Cancer
  • Genetic disorders
  • Ataxias - failure of muscle control in the arms and legs that result in movement disorders
  • Degeneration - disorders caused by brain cells decreasing in size or wasting away

Treatment of cerebellar disorders depends on the cause. In some cases, there is no cure but treatment may help with symptoms.

I get Avastin every 21 days. I get a severely swollen tongue about 1 week after treatment, sometimes only after one or two days. Is it a side effect of Avastin, or is it the combination of the drugs I am taking? Gabapentin, FAmotidine, Acyclovir, Meloxicam. I have lung cancer, am in remission. Thank you for your help!
