On both drugs for 9 days. Atrial fibrillation episode 48 hours after discontinuing
From this study (2 months ago):
Developed symptoms of hyperventation syndrome (need to take frequent deep satisfying deep breaths- not rapid breathing) after hospital stay for flu and possible meningitis. My chest x ray and CBC is normal. One doc tried to tell me this was PTSD/anxiety from post hospitalization. It is not. I am not anxious except for fact that I cannot breath right. I do not have pneumonia. I have never had this before, but I'm even short of breath while talking to people and distracted - still needing to take deep breaths mid conversation. I have never had some of the above drugs before and wondered if they could have anything to do with it. Thank you.
