Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Diagnosed with pneumonia and did take prednisone for two days. Became agitated and confused. Removed from prednisone because lungs sounded clearer but still experiencing hallucinations and some confusion. Still doing breathing treatments.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Acute Pyelonephritis diagnosed 6pm IV Ceftriaxone 2000mg 7pm. allowed home to return next day(s) for further IVs. Given Cardura for help with urination(which was not actually a problem) ant took 4mg before bedtime 10pm. May have had other pills like Beta blocker & anti sickness whilst taking IV - not sure). Woke to go and urinate and passed out in Bathroom, woke up cold sweat coming out of a vortex wife says looke like I was 'fitting', 2 minutes max. Hospitalised 3 days, 2 further 2000mg Ceftriaxone (IV)large quantities of water(plus anti emetic ETC)followed by 13 days Ciprofloxacin (2 x 500mg) Blood tests indicated low sodium and potassium which were replenished via IV. Had instances when my eyes were rolling/flicking back up into the sockets (almost blacking out?) 'positional dizzyness' continued throughout hospitalisation and return home - 20 days to date.
Discovered 'Black box' status of Cipro today. Cipro eliminated from body after 24 hours (google) not sure if this is going to end well.
Da_n sure I will not take any of the meds I was prescribed again
From this study (2 months ago):
Developed symptoms of hyperventation syndrome (need to take frequent deep satisfying deep breaths- not rapid breathing) after hospital stay for flu and possible meningitis. My chest x ray and CBC is normal. One doc tried to tell me this was PTSD/anxiety from post hospitalization. It is not. I am not anxious except for fact that I cannot breath right. I do not have pneumonia. I have never had this before, but I'm even short of breath while talking to people and distracted - still needing to take deep breaths mid conversation. I have never had some of the above drugs before and wondered if they could have anything to do with it. Thank you.
