  • 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.
  • The dangers off fluoridation
    I live in an area where the water has been fluoridated for approximately 55 years and have been treated for an underactive thyroid since 1978. I have also suffered from urge incontinence since 1967 and for 4 years have also had the symptoms of skeletal fluorosis although I have not been able to get the tests to confirm this. About 2 years ago I read about the dangers of fluoride and stopped using the tap water for drinking and cooking but still had to use it for bathing and still swam in the local pool. Also I have always drunk about 3 pints of tea a day. Recently it was found that there might be a problem with my kidneys so I stopped drinking tea and swimming. I had been going to the toilet 16/17 times a day but after about 5 weeks this was down to 7/8 times and the urgency was gone. Also I was given a follow up kidney function test after 6 weeks and that was normal. A few weeks later I was shopping in an area where the water is not fluoridated and risked having tea in a cafe there and the irritable bladder symptoms came back almost immediately and lasted for several weeks.
  • Ibuprofen and esophageal stricture
    After taking relatively high-doses of ibuprofen for many years, I developed an esophageal pain when swallowing large pills and experienced two unexplained events of esophageal spasm. A barium esophagram showed a stricture near the lower sphincter with a pencil-sized opening. Confirmed benign with a endoscopy and biopsy, it showed no gastric or duodenal ulcers from the ibuprofen, the stricture was expanded and I experience no discomfort now.
    I believe scarring of the esophagus was the result of taking ibuprofen often during the night with only a sip of water and then going back to bed. The ibuprofen dissolved in the water and by lying down immediately, the concentrated solution did not pass into my stomach but stayed in and irritated the lower esophagus for the rest of the night.
    To avoid future occurrences, the simple solution is to take ibuprofen with a full glass of water and avoid lying down for the next 30 minutes or so.
  • 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

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I think it was brought on by the Suboxone. I took 3-4 a day for approximately 4 years starting 11 years ago. Stopped them but realized they were helping with my depression. After trying every antidepressant with no help the Suboxone was wonderful. I got back on it but only taking 2-3 a day for another 2-3 years. Insurance stopped paying about 9 months ago. I continued to take them, but only 1 a day for another 1-2 years. Now, I take 1 occasionally. When I completely stopped the neuropathy gradually began. It was around Sept. I began to notice my feet felt like they were numb. With shoes on I felt like they were wet. I also noticed getting weaker and my family noticed I was walking slow, etc. Feel terrible with terrible problem of something like hot flashes, but those were over years ago. Have lots of nausea. My doctor used some type instrument and I have very little feeling on the bottom of my feet. He is sending me to a neurologist.
