  • I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism in Sept. 2012 after 6 yrs. of taking Tramadol 50mg. I had gotten it under control using Red Yeast Rice 200mg 3 times a day, Niacin, and Multi-vitamin with iodine. I was told to eat more fish and add iodized salt to my diet which I had done. Then after starting the Pantoprazole my thyroid test came back showing my TSH and T3 were abnormal again. My doctor had me stop the Pantoprazole. Now I'm starting to think that it's the Tramadol and that the Pantoprazole only made things worse for me. I'm looking into Iodine supplements now to help my thyroid.

    I have a woman friend who also had a full blown psychotic reaction to Fentanyl when she was exposed to high heat conditions. Now she is off of it and still delusional after effects. I worried that one day she won't come back but be stuck in that delusional state.

    I am a healthy female who at 50yrs old had a serious accident and was given Fentanyl first then later with morphione. With Fentanyl I became disorientated, aggressive, frightened and at times lost consciousness enroute to the hosp.
    In ER I was confused, in pain and terrible fear. I was afraid I was actually dead and no one was really helping me.
    I have had many surgeries and I know pain and pain meds. Morphine works well with no side effects. Fentanyl, as I discovered later, put me in a delusional state where I was never really conscious, couldn't speak coherently or connect with anyone, I felt trapped with no concept of what was happening to me - very frightening!
    After surgery I used a pain pump containing F & M. After every pump I was buried under layers of unconsiousness. I don't know how long this carried on but I remember occasionally 'rising' to the top, beginning to have my mind back but slipping away again with the injection. Then I decided to refuse the pain pump. Without the meds my mind became clearer despite the pain. When I had my senses back I called for a doctor, demanded to know what was in the medication pump and after he said Fentanyl and Morphine I told him I would only take morphine because I knew how that worked with me.
    The staff were surprised and asked me to explain the feelings I had with Fentanyl. They had never heard of that reaction before.
    That was the most frightening hospital experience ever and the pain of broken legs and pelvis was secondary to the horror of psychosis. Within several hours of no Fentynal, I was totally clear headed and grateful to have my mind back.
    This took place in Calgary, Alberta, Foothills Hospital, November 2004.
