- Hallucination reaction
In July I had a horrible hallucination reaction due to the medication I take, I take the Risperdal, Zoloft, and Xanax at night due to my anxiety and depression and the lidocaine Benadryl and there was one more drug. those three were combined for a special mouthwash called magic mouth wash. Do you think the medicine was the cause of the reaction. I have never had a reaction like that in my life. I did hear that Zoloft can cause hallucinations and also that your not supposed to take Benadryl and Xanax together. if anyone knows about drug interactions or knows if that was the cause of my reaction please give me some information. I am now terrified to take any medicine and still have horrible flashbacks from that night. t

- Diphenhydramine and mental acuity
For at least 10 years, I have taken diphenhydramine 50 mg. at bedtime for insomnia and allergies. The results have been that I sleep well with no hangover or any cognitive impairment. If I experience vertigo from allergies, I may take an additional 50 mg. but never exceeding 100 mg in a 24 hour period.
After reading the report regarding an Alzheimer's study finding that after taking as little as 4mg diphenhydramine daily for more than 3 years, dementia rates were high.
I stopped the diphenhydramine one night. I experienced symptoms of deep brain pulsating pain and severe insomnia. After 4 hours, I took 50 mg diphenhydramine and slept very well. The next night I took 37.5 mg. diphenhydramine, slept very well. However, some of my tasks require layers of mental challenges in which I became slower.
My question is how did the study recipients obtain 4 mg doses of diphenhydramine when the standard over-the-counter (OTC) availability in tablets is 25 mg? How reliable is the information submitted from the study subjects? What manufacturer's diphendramine was used, or were there several?
I felt sharper mentally when on 50 mg daily than so far on 37.5 mg.
- Caution about remeron!
As do many folks suffering from fibromyalgia with depression I ended up seeing a psychiatrist; several actually over the years. During my clinical exams in nursing school my anxiety levels were unbearable and my doc changed my AD to Remeron. So what happened? No more anxiety - no emotions at all! My daughter declared, "You're not my mom anymore - I don't know who you are!" I was walking into walls, my eye/hand coordination went wonky, and I didn't care! The only feeling I had was hunger. I gained THIRTY POUNDS IN ONE MONTH! Not trusting my shrink anymore because prescribing this potent drug to a nursing student was beyond negligent I went to my GP for advice. She was shocked and told me she only prescribed Remeron for her endstage cancer patients, mainly to increase their appetite. I was switched to another AD and sailed through my clinical and state board exams.
Even though we feel powerless and vulnerable when in crisis we have to garner enough energy to get all the facts and question if the medication is really the right choice!
