76 year old female,excellent health until I had an episode with trip to emergency room for high blood pressure and high cholestrol. In the ER they sent me home with 325 mg aspirin a day and 40mg. Lipitor. Went to my doctor 2 weeks later he said stay on both meds. About 2 months into taking thes my legs were aching at night about 5 hours after taking the Lipitor at bed time. I called my doctor and he said add CoQ 10, until I saw him in 6 weeks. At the office visit I explained the leg aches and weakness again,he said ok I will switch you to 10 mg Crestor, but he called late that afternoon that my enzymes were elevated and he wanted me to have an ultra sound. I told him stopping the Lipitor I felt like a new person,no aches and legs regained strength. I am asking him to let me come back in a month for new blood tests and no ultra sound and more tests till we see if stopping Lipitor also reduces the elevated enzymes.
They put me on Adderall XR 25mg for my ADHD. I'm also on lithium carbonate er and neurontin. I was on the adderall for one week and now I'm still having symptoms of psychosis. I'm hallucinating and having a hard time distinguishing what is real and what isn't. I still have extreme paranoia as well. I've been off of it for about a month. When I was on it I didn't talk to anybody cause I was delusional and believed EVERYONE had hidden intentions to destroy me (even those closest to me). I still have some of that. I just want all the psychosis to stop. It's stressing me out. Anyone having any suggestions to help? I hallucinate shadows and people and hearing my name. I see people looking at me and I feel like they're judging me and planning something.
