  • I was admitted to hospital for four days due to the adverse effects from these medications. On the last day, I begged them to let me out even though I was not better, so I could be with my family. I have to walk with a cane to help stabilize me, because I have fallen several times. I still have hallucinations where I see stuff on the walls and floors that are not there. I also suffered double and trouble focusing my eyes, this has for the most part disappeared.
