  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Took Kirkland Sleep Aid for four consecutive nights. Woke up on the fifth morning with strong heart palpitations every 15 to 20 minutes, which have continued over the past 36 hours consistently. Am now experiencing tightness of chest too.

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • My blood pressure is still up. I started taking 2 losartan a day a little over a week ago. Was not having symptoms as bad when taking only 1. Blood pressure seems to come down some with the clonidine. I think the extra losartan has triggered a reaction.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I took approximately 20 paracetamol and a 70cl of 40% alcohol on Monday (this is now Friday) but my husband called an ambulance very quickly but before they arrived I was very drowsy and my eyes were rolling I think. I arrived at hospital and don't know if my stomach was pumped but was put on a drip I remember white liquid and a couple of yellow ones.

    My memory of this is basically non existent as well as the week before and I am struggling to remember much on a day to day basis
