  • Invokana and fatigue
    I was prescribed this medication. I was sleeping an extra 5 hours during a 24 hour period. I would find myself falling asleep at 4pm not waking till 7. This is not my normal sleep pattern. Clearly this medicine is robbing me of daylight.
  • Aggression with law enforcement officers who use provigil
    I'm a former police officer. I say former because on the second day of ever taking provigil, I flipped out and kicked a handcuffed arestee. After 10 years of being an award winning police officer I totally lost it after taking this drug. needless to say, I immediately quit taking the pill; however, my career is over. Has anyone ever heard of something like this happening? Do I have any rights?
  • Gabapentin made me comatose
    I took Neurontin, and then its generic, Neurontin, for about five years. It was prescribed for chronic pain. I found it ineffective, but kept being told it was a good drug, quite benign, and was probably benefiting me more than I realized. I did NOT realize that toward the end of the five-year period I was sinking into somnolence. On some days I simply didn't bother with the drug, because I felt it was ineffective, but on others I followed doctor's orders. Thus my condition varied depending on whether I'd actually ingested the drug. My condition came to a crisis when my husband called me from work, and found me incoherent. He took me to the ER, but I remember nothing about it. Apparently I was pleasant during admission, but clearly confused (I thought we had two presidents -- probably conflating George Bush with George W. Bush.) By the time doctors saw me, I was comatose. The physicians suspected morphine intoxication, as I was a chronic-pain patient. They didn't know what to do and thought I was dying. My husband told them the name of my pain- management doctor, who immediately diagnosed the problem. My kidneys were shutting down. He pointed to my creatines, which were off the chart. He told the other doctors to hydrate me fully, and leave me alone -- that I would be fine. I awoke about 10 hours later in intensive care. A nurse asked me if I knew where I was, and I replied I knew I was in the hospital but didn't know why. I was discharged the next morning, and had no lasting effects from the drug.
  • Profolol side effects-will not use again
    It is slightly more than 24 hours since profolol alone was given to me for a colonoscopy and endoscopy. I woke up quickly but very sleepy and tired. Forced to get in wheelchair and leave asap. Slept when I got home all night. The next day was very disoriented, lightheaded when I sat up or got up and unable to walk without feeling so dizzy and unable to walk straight that I was fearful I would fall without assistance. Halo affect in front of my eyes and unable physically to do anything. Just wanted to sleep and lie down. Not depressed but my body just did not want to function and could not function when I stood up. Very scary. Hoping will be gone after 48 hours.
  • Idiopathic insomnolence (1 response)
    So...

    In 1997 I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy with an intolerance to Dexamp(hetamine) tablets.

    After 3 years of nose operations, and sleep tests to remove other potential issues (lung problems or apnoea) I have finally been re-diagnosed (2013) with idiopathic insomnolence.

    Modaphinil caused a reaction of insane nausea, pains behind the eyes, dizzy spells, with no real change in blood pressure.

    Dexamphetamine was erratic (on recent retrial) with extremes causing dizzy spells and slow progressive drop in BP over 3 weeks from average 125/75 to 105/60. Occasionally it would wake my body up but my brain would be slow to follow, and the conflict would take me to the cleaners for the next two days.

    I was diagnosed with IgAN in 2004, and have progressive idiopathic neuropathy in my feet since 2011.

    The sleep specialist wants me to try Klacid (clarithromycin) as it has reportedly caused insomnia on a regular basis. I've not yet agreed.

    That's me in a nutshell.

    To many idiopathics and drug rejections.

    Somebody has not got their finger on the pulse, but no idea who yet.

    Jus thought I'd throw this out there in case anyone else is having difficulties aswell.

    Cheers !

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • Recently had IBS symptoms (diahrrhea, stomach pain, bloating, gas) for several weeks. My physician diagnosed me with IBS. He also said that Metformin can cause loose bowels. I stopped the Metformin then for a few days (on my own).
    I noticed that bowel movements became more normal.
