Norman (3 years ago):

I used to take Benadryl because I knew it would make me hallucinate. Sometimes the hallucinations would be overwhelming to the point that I had to go to the hospital and the whole situation fealt like a loosely controlable lucid dream. About the only thing I could comprehend was that I knew not to sign the 3 day watch paper. The funny thing was the nezt day when I saw the paperwork that I filled out at the hospital was complete jiberish.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I was admitted to hospital for four days due to the adverse effects from these medications. On the last day, I begged them to let me out even though I was not better, so I could be with my family. I have to walk with a cane to help stabilize me, because I have fallen several times. I still have hallucinations where I see stuff on the walls and floors that are not there. I also suffered double and trouble focusing my eyes, this has for the most part disappeared.
