WITHOUT YOUR HELP I WOULD NEVER HAVE KNOWN WHY I STARTED SLEEP WALKING AND ASHAMED TO SAY WET THE BED. I HAVE PSORIASIS ARTHRITIS AND WAS STARTED ON PLAQUENIL WHILST ALREADY TAKING A HIGH DOSE OF AMITRIPTYLINE. DURING SLEEP WALKING I FELL OVER AND CRACKED MY HEAD SERIOUSLY. WITHIN 48 HOURS OF WITHDRAWING MYSELF OFF PLAQUENIL I WAS BACK TO NORMAL. THANKYOU SO MUCH. I AM PASSING THIS ON TO THE HEALTH PROFESSIONALS THAT NEED TO KNOW.

This appears to be very rudimentary report that as a result of vast amounts of time spent to reveal very little. One wonders why. Gabapentin is safe without any reactions. Amazing. Amitirptyline didn't cause any starnge mental reactions? Well

On Crestor (and Micardis, Lexapro,Epilim) - for few months. Before Epilim and Micardis, was on Crestor and noted exhaustion,muscle pain(too painful to get on floor and almost impossible to get up each and every time - had to mentally scream atmyself to manage to arise);also months of awful fasciitis. Some minor alleviation but feet feel swollen to bursting; bones or other soft tissues very painful; hobbling for months; cant exercise much;great loss of motivation; struggling to keep on feet. A week ago jumped off Epilim and Lexapro. Distressed enough to leap of Crestor and Micardis now. Heart palpitations/irregular beats increasing in occurrence.
