  • Intrsoccular pressure increase associated with wellbutrin
    I was given a prescription for Wellbutrin in approximately 1998. I had has my ocular pressure checked a year prior to this and it was okay. At the time, I only needed to wear reading glasses, common in people over 45. I took the drug at the full prescribed dosage for two weeks. Immediately prior to the narrow angle glaucoma episode, my vision had actually seemed to improve. For one day, prior, I could read without reading glasses. The following night, I was watching tv, and things suddenly became foggy. It was actually as if a fog had enveloped the room. I could not see anything except to discern between light and dark areas. I had to have emergency laser surgery the next morning. I mentioned to the doctor that Iwas taking Wellbutrin to stop smoking, and asked if it could have caused the ocular pressure increase. he consulted the PDR, and said there was no mention of it causing increases in ocular pressure. One year later my primary care doctor again insisted that I stop smoking, and again I mentioned that I thought it might increase ocular pressure. She told me to take a half dose, I did, and I took it one week, at which time I again experienced another episode of narrow angle glaucoma. When I go to the doctor's office my pressure in my left eye was 72, and 68 in my right eye. I was then referred on a triage basis to another doctor. I spent the rest of the day in his office having drops administered every fifteen minutes(extremely painful). I had extensive laser surgery the next morning.It required over fifty shots from the laser machine into each eye, (also extremely painful). I had lost considerable peripheral AND CENTRAL VISION in my left eye, and a good deal in my right. As a result of having to have such extensive laser surgery I also had cataracts that began at 50% maturity. I was advised by the surgeon that I should wait to have the cataracts removed "until my vision and quality of life was so poor that I was ready to commit suicide" because having the cataracts removed would cause the pressure in my eyes to become very difficult to control, and that more than likely I would end up being black blind. I would never use Wellbutrin under any circumstances, and I always check to make sure that any new meds I may be put on don't have anything to do with an increase in ocular pressure. If they do, I refuse to take them. The surgeon said he was surprised that I didn't lose more vision than I did, and I am grateful that I didn't, and that he was a good surgen. He wrote an article concerning this case for a medical journal since he said he had been seeing a recent increase of narrow angle glaucoma.
  • Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
    I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
  • Bedwetting with paxil and wellbutrin
    I have been using both of these drugs and now have bedwetting issues 5 times a week on average. I would rate the bedwetting as moderate about a6/10 but my wife and I can live with this as she had made the comment " you are back to the man I married ". I started taking these due to depression about work and anxiety about work. We both think we can live with the bedwetting as no one needs to know about it
  • Wellbutrin caused my trigeminal neurlagia
    So I'm writing this to hopefully shed light to other users in the same position I was in. I had taken Wellbutrin for about 4 years. The pain experienced in my face was excruciatingly painful. It was just on one side of my face between my temple and upper lip. All the symptoms reflected Trigeminal Neuralgia. But even with an MRI nothing could be found. I suffered for 3 of those years with pain coming and going, not understanding what was going on. Finally one day I decided hell with Wellbutrin and just stopped taking it. It's been 6 months now and I have yet to have a single shred of pain. Coincidence? I doubt it.
  • Lorazepam nearly killed me during cancer treatment
    Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • For the last 3 years in the spring, I have developed a severe cough and peripheral edema. I was hospitalized for this 2 years ago when the cough wouldn't resolve and the edema became cellulitis. Antibiotics help with the cough, but the edema persists. Never had this so late in the year, usually resolved by now.

    I had been taking nasonex for about 16 months on and off when the insurance wouldn't approve it any longer....then I was able to get approval after 2 months of being off of it. (filled scrip in dec 2013) I used it everyday. I was not taking anything else except ibuprofen on and off when needed. I continued to get sicker. I had headaches, eye pain, ear pain, sore throats and a swishing sound like a heart beat. It went on to cause short term memory loss and confusion. I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension with papilledema. I found 2 articles that talked about steroidal usage as a cause for IIH with paps. I looked up Nasonex and found it was a steroidal spray. I stopped taking it on June 19, 2014 and for the last 3 days I have had no double vision, and no swishing in my ears.....I am hoping the rest of the symptoms will subside with time. I strongly suggest anyone taking this medication to do so with the ut most caution.

  • From this study (11 months ago):

  • While I had the flu I began using guaifenesin and Sudafed to try to relieve the symptoms of sinus discharge, post-nasal drip and phlegm, and cough. I have mostly recovered but still cough a lot due to excessive sinus drainage and phlegm in my lungs.
