Hello, I am 21 years old and developed a form of td from being given metoclopramide while studying abroad in England. I was on it for two days and now my brain gets foggy all the time, I have unexplained pains and muscle spasms and I can't drive or work full time. I can't have sex without being in pain, because it makes my spasms worse. And I got off easy, from what I hear; and yet I can't bear this pain. I really want to end my life. I am so scared and angry and sad. I can't imagine living the rest of my life like this. I can't cope and I don't want to. I feel like a human who's been experimented on; They never warned me any of this could happen. I cannot believe that people cant prescribe a drug that can turn a person into this and they have no idea how to fix it. It is like living in hell and there is no escape. It should be a crime worthy of jail time. They murdered my life. I wish I had the balls to commit suicide so my pain would be over, but I don't really want to die. I want to live. I want my life that they stole from me; but I can't have it. So I wish I would get hit by a car or die of some natural cause. I seriously believe I would rather die than live a life of coping with this; no amount of coping will change the fact that my life from here on is suffering. I don't know what to do and don't think I can deal. I wish I were dead instead.
About two weeks after beginning Zetia, I started to have severe itching after a shower. It also happened when I washed my hands or face. The itching was in the areas that touched water, except for my torso area. It is unrelenting for about 45 minutes. It is like being tortured for 45 minutes. I tried hydrocortizone, moisturizer, took oral benedryl. Nothing worked except for time. I discontinued Zetia today and hope to be itch-free soon!
