  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • The abnormal dreams & mild hallucinations came only after starting the methylprednisolone a few days ago. They happen primarily when I am sleeping. I woke up last night with very unusual dreams & head/brain pain, and was quite concerned. I had taken 1 methylprednisolone & 1 cymbalta before bed. Earlier in the day, I had taken 2 methylprednisolone & 2 tramadol before a nap, and had similar, though not as severe issues. Trying to figure out what the interaction problem is. I did not take the muscle relaxant (cyclopenzaprine) before bed since I started the cortico steroid pack.

    Mother just survived near brush with respiratory arrest. Hallucinated at night on Tramadol, argumentative with RN who reported her to MD. He planned to ADD Seroquel 25 mg to Tramadol, Neurontin, Remeron and Ativan in rehab facility. She declined Tramadol and Seroquel and was still so sedated her pulse ox went down to 84 with long periods of apnea and need for constant obs with frequent rousing for airway. MAJOR struggle with RN to get 02 and MD agreed to no more Tramodol at night and absolutely no Seroquel. How many elderly are lost this way?

  • 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.
