  • Seizure after an epipen injection (1 answer)
    I am allergic to EVERYTHING, so I usually pre-game with benadryl and wait out the uncomfortable side effects, but this time my tongue started swelling up and I was having trouble breathing so I went to an ER. About 5-7 minutes after they injected me in the thigh with an epipen, I was in mid sentence when I started having strange sensations and tremors all over my body. The injection spot, which is incredibly sore and feels like they hit my femur) suddenly became very warm and I could feel it spreading out quickly. I could hear people but I couldn't speak, everything clamped up, I couldn't breathe and I felt very confused and forgot what I was about to say to the nurse. The doctor caught the tail end of it and claimed I was having a panic attack! I heard both the nurses say that they thought it was a seizure. This happened to me once more a few yrs ago with an allergic reaction, but it was from the nurse pushing in the benadryl too quickly, which made my hands curl up like T-Rex and my eyes rolled back into my head. Is there such a thing as being allergic to epinephrine or has anyone ever experienced a seizure/stroke like reaction after being administered Epipen or Benadryl ?
  • Is there allergy medicines that you should not take with vwd
    I am wondering what can be taken for allergies or medication I should avoid for people with von willebrands?
  • Phentermine topamax and depo provera
    I'm am wondering if th phentermine, the topamax (25 mg x2 a day ) will interfer will the depo provera?
  • Can i take garcinia cambogia with 80mg of flouoxitine and prempro?
    Would like to know if I can take Garcinia Cambogia with the meds and vitamin I am currently taking. I'd like to lose weight with Garcinia Cambogia. Thank You

  • Swelling and pain in one of my breasts after using fexofanadine
    I took them for one week or two as an anti allergic drug and I found these conditions in my body. Then I stopped it for 6 months as I was away from allergenic country (Australia) and there was no symptoms. When I came back to Australia and needed Fexofenadine again, I used it for 1 week and I again notice swelling and pain in one of my breasts.
  • Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
    Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.
  • Happened to me- allergic reaction to rogaine
    Within the first week of usage, I began to have leg cramps, facial swelling, tightness of breath, chest pain, anxiety, and chronic headaches. Even with allergy medicines and aspirin, nothing seemed to help. At first, I felt it was though it was just simple allergies until I woke up one morning with my face so swollen that I could see my skin around my eyes without looking in a mirror. My throat began to swell to the point it was difficult to swallow. I immediately went to the ER to receive a shot and sleep all day with Benadryl. The following day, I have redness in the skin and hoarseness. The doctor told me too never touch Rogaine again or I would end up in the hospital (or worse).
  • Temazepam & fenfexodine
    Is anyone else finding the Temazepam is not working when taken with fenofexedine? I survive on a few hours of sleep a day.
  • Cephalexin 500 mg caused allergic reaction (1 response)
    I developed a rash that quickly turned to painful, itchy blistering after taking cephalexin 500mg capsules for only 2 days (the prescription was for 10 days). The rash was on my hands, legs, back, & arms. I was sent by my doctor to the hospital emergency room. diagnosed as an allergic reaction to cephalexin. treated with steroids & another antibiotic. this was one of the scariest episodes of my life. I hope people are reporting this type of problem.

  • Around the time I started itching I began allegra and was also given generic lipitor. The itching is intense, Can not sleep.Doctor upped dosage of prozac to 40 mil twice a day. I also take 1 mil klonopin 3 times a day but does not help. Doctors say it could be stress but I have had anxiety most of my life and it has never reacted like this. Any suggestions? Thank you

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • I had 2 anaphylactic responses within three weeks of each other and I am looking for a common element. I had taken it before but prn. Then I had rotator cuff surgery and took it while away and reacted within an hr and didn't take one again until yesterday and within an hour I was back in emergency. The only common food factor other then this drug was chicken. I am pursuing, diligently to figure this out.
