  • 13yr old autistic daughter diagnosed with cerebral palsy after taking seroquel
    My beautiful 13yrold daughter who was diagnosed with Autism at 2 yrs old, never suffered from ANY physical disabilities prior to being put on a very large dose of SEROQUEL at age 11. Within less than a year, she went from running and jumping on her trampoline to being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy!! She now has to be cared for in a facility, relying on being pushed in a wheelchair for outside transfer, and wearing a foam helmet to protect her from injury during her daily falls. Two separate neurologists label her with cerebral palsy and will not go any further in diagnosis. Genetic studies show no explanation, and the children's hospital are the only one willing to indicate the possibility of the medications she was put on by a mental health facility as the possible cause. I have long avoided placing her on heavy medications for the 11 years that she was in my care, and this did not occur until she went into her father's care temporarily while I had major surgery. Over a period of6-8 months, she began to develop a limp and became so unsteady she could not walk 5 feet without bumping into things and falling. When I cared for her again and saw the medications she had been placed on, I am not ashamed to say I not only researched them, but took one of the Seroquel to see how it affected ME! I was over 80 pounds heavier than my daughter at the time, yet found myself completely incapacitated for almost 48hrs!! I immediately took her to the children's hospital in our area where she was hospitalized for over a week and treated by a TEAM of physicians ranging from Orthopedics to Neurologists. From CT Scans, complete blood work, MRIS, etc., nothing could explain any cause for her issues except "the possibility of the medications". They began to lower her Seroquel dose then sent her to the state mental hospital 4 hours away where she stayed for 2 months while undergoing the genetic studies and another neurologist who continued to lower the Seroquel and completely take her off it. My beautiful girl is now left with a lifetime physical disability.
  • Prednisone relieves anosmia
    Having had anosmia for 15 years now the only thing that ever relieves it, albeit temporarily, is prednisone. I have done 2 surgeries to remove polyps (and won't do it again, waste of time and money - the polyps returned within a year), every herb and other "guaranteed cure" (bogus) on the Internet and the only thing that gives me my smell back is prednisone. Have also done allergy injections, nebulizers, neti-pots, Flonase, etc. None of these things work.
    Being without smell is subtly debilitating. It takes away your drive, your pleasures of life and leads to depression. I wish the medical community would apply as much effort here as they do to the loss of hearing or sight since this is in many ways just as debilitating although in more subtle ways.
  • Adverse reaction to prednisone
    Severe allergic reaction. Given prednisone for angioedema attributed to Lisinopril. Within 24 hours, severe red skin on face, bp +200/+100 spikes, shortness of breath, chest pain snd severe heart palpitations. Went to ER. Given another IV cocktail of sulomedrol, Bdnadryl snd Zantac, told to double my prednisone pills to 20 mg twice a day. On fifth day, znother similar reaction but worse. Went in ambulance to ER. Put on oxygen and atavan. Sent home with six day tapering dose. No appetite. Nausea. After last pill, blood pressure spikes, flushing, chills, fatigue, blood sugar crashes, especially at night. Had to eat every two hours. Severe skin pain and itching, going on still after six weeks of stopping meds. This drug has HORRIBLE side effects. None of the drs czn tell me how long this will last, or evdn if it will go away. Eating organic, taking soothing baths, detoxing, taking adrenal, vitamin and mineral suppldments, drinking water and detoxing teas. Some symptoms are a bit better but skin is driving me crazy. How czn this drug be prescribed when drs really don 't know all it does nor how to counteract the horrible side effects!?!?
  • My finger tendons broke on prednisone
    Twelve years ago I was put on prednisone for sudden hearing loss. The prednisone helped the hearing loss (for as long as I took the drug; hearing loss returned after I stopped the prednisone.) But I kept getting ruptured tendons in my fingers, which I had to splint to use. I couldn't figure out why in heck this was happening. My doctor(s) didn't have a clue. I suspected the ruptures might have to do with prednisone. Now I know they were caused by it. When I stopped the prednisone, the tendon-ruptures stopped, too. This should be Must Tell information for any doctor who prescribes this dangerous drug.
  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
