- Narcolepsy-cataplexy and epilepsy after taking tamiflu (1 response)
Sorry for my unperfect English : ) I'm french.
I suddenly declared an "atypic" Narcolepsy-cataplexy after taking two pills of TAMIFLU in 2007. My husband was ill, and our family doctor recommanded me and my baby to take the same medecine otherwise we should also catch the "bad" flu.
I took two pills of TAMIFLU and fell down at my office, unanimated but not unconscious, unable to move, prisonner in my own body. Till this day, I couldn't help falling down 10 to 15 Times a day, being sleepy all the day long, being paralysed when I Wake up in the morning. Several nights I also experimented tonic-clonic epilepsy seizures and insomnia. My life would never be the same till then.
I was misdiagnotised the first time, since I didn't carry the "HLA specific type" confirming a typical narcolepsy. But the cataplexy attacks were so specifically that I obtained to be recieved in a sleep-center to check my sleepness architecture. The results were shortly confirming the diagnosis of Narcolpesy-Cataplexy in its nontypical form, "secondary type" as in rare cases as following a trauma, and also the diagnostics of frontal epilepsy.
I precise I did NEVER had seizure or epilepsy crises before the day I fell down after taking TAMILFU.
At the RMI, I was detected an "intrasellar arachnoidocele" which could explain the survenience of my symptoms. It's sudden appearance might have been a side effect of TAMIFLU which is now known to rich (oseltamivir substance)the blood-brain barrier and cause irreversible dammages to brain.
As a conclusion, TAMIFLU appeared to be responsable of a "medecinal intoxication" causing the narcolepsy-cataplexy I suddenly suffer since then.
Several Years after, we hear about narcolepsy cases caused by the massive H1N1 vaccinations... But what about me, am I the only one case declared by TAMIFLU and its molecule oseltamivir ?

I have felt fine all day...now have severe sore throat (broken glass feeling with swallowing, and very swollen lymph-nodes in my neck. The only medications I take are estrodiol 1 mg, requip 4 mg and imitrex for migraines as needed. I actually feel great from the shoulders down and the jaw line up...but my throat is miserable. Has anyone else had this happen after taking Tamiflu?

From this study (1 month ago):
I am a Type 1 diabetic on insulin pump therapy with the continuous glucose monitoring link. I also take a Sertraline pill a day to take the edge off, but do not always take it on time during the hectic weekends/holidays. The past 2 days (day 3 and 4 of Tamiflu medication) had episodes where my blood sugar plummeted and I experienced very altered states -- last night it was dream-like and I blacked out/don't remember about an hour with my family and today it was emotional and fitful.
