- 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 ?
- Steven-johnsons syndrome caused by zoloft
Was diagnosed with depression start of last year due to my Aspergers multiplying school pressures for me. I was not put on any medication until 4 weeks ago. I was put on Zoloft 25mg, which slowly increased to 50mg. The moment I started on 50mg it caused severe lip dryness leading to cracking of the lips and bleeding of the lips. These first problems led to me visiting the general practitioner who dismissed it as being just dry lips. But burning and stinging pain in lip increased to the point where I could not swallow anymore and had to go to the ER. They quickly dismissed it as being simple dehydration with the advise to try and drink as much as possible, but was also advised to stop Zoloft just to be on the safe side. The next day developed water-like mouth ulcers, which then changed into blood ulcers and had a fever jumping between 99.9 and 102.6 Fahrenheit. Went to doctors office again and was told that it was Steven-Johnsons Syndrome. Was given two types of crèmes in hope to stop it spreading and to relieve most of the lip problems. And was also told to take regular, as high as possible, Ibuprofen in order to keep pain under-control. The lip and all the other problems have now left, after 2 months. I am only left with visible scars on my lips. The pain was completely unbearable, felt like being burned, and am happy that pain is now gone.
- Mouth ulceration in cozaar
For painful mouth ulcers caused either by my blood pressure drug, Losartan, or my cholesterol med, Zetia, I rinsed my mouth with warm salt water. The ulcers are healed. I have other side effects but both these drugs cause similar symptoms it's impossible to tell which is causing certain side effects. Starting today, I am going off the Zetia. Losartan helps lower cholesterol AND lowers blood pressure so I am taking it alone for a month to see if the side effects are reduced by cutting out the Zetia.
- Slowing getting better from mouth ulcers
I took one Malerone pill and got bleeding mouth ulcers. Only one- then I stopped due to the issue I did not go on my safari but returned to Chicago. Ten days later it is slowly resolving with antibacterial mouth wash. Very scary- never had any issues with malerone before. Do not take any other medicines at all.
