Could any of these drugs cause rise in glucose levels?
I went to the hospital that I previously have had stroke/aneurysm coiling, active aneurysm in my neck. Have gone to same hospital when I had 3 TIA's. I have been taking Paxil and Xanax for 23 years. Could not find a PCP as I am a cash paying customer with no insurance. (My PCP retired.) Ran out of my medication (Paxil and Xanax), tried for a week to find new PCP to become established. No luck. After 5 days, I began vomiting and thinking suicidal thoughts (to me - normal for coming off 60 mg of Paxil in 5 days.) I explained to ER intake my symptoms and thoughts, told them I googled "Quick and Painless ways to die". She stopped listening as I also stated that I ALSO googled how long suicidal thoughts last after coming off Paxil cold turkey. I was there for HELP. What happened next is the most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me. I began a tirade that lasted hours. Using the most horrendous names you could think of... (Mel Gibson type tirade) at staff. Engaging them in aggressive behavior, calling names, spitting, screaming obscenities as loud as I could, thrusting my pelvis in the air, slapping it yelling that if they had to watch me then they were trying to watch my crotch and here it is... I AM NOT THIS KIND OF PERSON. Referring to an African American nurse as a mf'ing black, c*%k sucking whore, etc. They decided to restrain me. At this point, I begin to loose recollection of what happened. The last memory I have is that my boyfriend of 11 years KNEW something ELSE was wrong and he decided to take me to another hospital and he would NOT let me harm myself. NO! They called security, at our request, to help us out of there. They came and my boyfriend became aggressive with security. They asked if we wanted police. We said YES. I am convinced that they caused me to have a stroke. The last thing is screaming to my bf to go home, I loved him and did NOT want him in jail. I lay in that hospital, apparently until the next afternoon when they transported me to a mental institution. I have no recollection of leaving the hospital, the ambulance ride there. I slightly remember a couple of speed bumps going into facility. When I arrived the only thing I remember is ripping up paperwork when they told me where I was and crawling into bed. I vaguely remember them calling for meals but I gave an I'll be there in a minute, or I'll go to the next one answer. Apparently, I had been sleeping for three days. Remember being awakened to take pills but no one ever checked on me. I KNOW I HAD A STROKE. Is there any test to tell if a person has recently had a stroke?? Thank you very much.
