Trying to figure out if my symptoms are related to medications I am taking or due to chronic fatigue syndrome which I have been diagnosed with and maybe fibromyalgia or lumbar stenosis or MS.
From this study (2 years ago):
I have taken Zyrtec and citalopram for more than a year with no side-effects. After 1 cycle of prednisone, I had moderate insomnia and minor confusion and short-term memory loss. After the second cycle of prednison, and the addition of tramadol, fluocinonide, antivert, and ondansetron, the short term memory loss, insomnia, and confusion were markedly worse (severe).
