- Severe insomnia and anxiety/panic attacks
I was prescribed Augmentin for a sore throat. The doctor did not do a Strep test to determine if I had a bacterial or viral infection. She must have assumed bacterial. For three nights I had severe insomnia. I was only able to get about 2 hours sleep every night during a maximum of about 20 minutes per sleep session. I didn't realize that Augmentin was the cause. My sleeping environment was perfect for sleep except I would lie there awake. Eventually panic would set in if some nasal congestion or stoppage manifested itself. I'd jump out of bed and turn on the light. If I could not get relief, I found myself walking through my darkened house turning on lights. But nothing seemed to calm the situation. I also had severe panic or anxiety attacks. I had to escape darkened rooms at night. I could not sit still throughout the day. I felt jumpy, terribly fatigued, unable to focus, and anxious. I stopped taking Augmentin and I finally was able to get almost seven hours of sleep although I did wake four times during that period due to congestion. After some local remedies, I was able to fall back asleep. The anxiety attacks have stopped. I can now focus again and have some energy to read or do work. For completeness, I took Augmentin three years as prescribed by my oral surgeon when he had to remove a tooth. I did not experience insomnia or anxiety/panic attacks on that occasion.
- Diphenhydramine and mental acuity
For at least 10 years, I have taken diphenhydramine 50 mg. at bedtime for insomnia and allergies. The results have been that I sleep well with no hangover or any cognitive impairment. If I experience vertigo from allergies, I may take an additional 50 mg. but never exceeding 100 mg in a 24 hour period.
After reading the report regarding an Alzheimer's study finding that after taking as little as 4mg diphenhydramine daily for more than 3 years, dementia rates were high.
I stopped the diphenhydramine one night. I experienced symptoms of deep brain pulsating pain and severe insomnia. After 4 hours, I took 50 mg diphenhydramine and slept very well. The next night I took 37.5 mg. diphenhydramine, slept very well. However, some of my tasks require layers of mental challenges in which I became slower.
My question is how did the study recipients obtain 4 mg doses of diphenhydramine when the standard over-the-counter (OTC) availability in tablets is 25 mg? How reliable is the information submitted from the study subjects? What manufacturer's diphendramine was used, or were there several?
I felt sharper mentally when on 50 mg daily than so far on 37.5 mg.
- Prozac for children with pandas ocd
No side effects, works wonders, taking for two years and weaning off.
- Dymista gave me insomnia and nightmares
I have been taking Dymista for two weeks and it is fantastic for clearing up allergy symptoms. However, for the past two weeks I have had an extremely hard time trying to fall asleep; it is like I have insomnia. When I do fall asleep which usually last around an hour or so either day or night I have very vivid nightmares
- Took buspirone once and got a blister
Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.
