From this study (2 years ago):
Please help my husband. He's had 4 of 6 chemo treatments for sclc that has metastisized to liver. All of a sudden, he's begun hyperventilating and when blood gases were checked, found to have good O2, low CO2. His mid-point scans showed no visible signs of lung tumors and visibly shrunk liver lesions. He's 64, a lifetime smoker. His weight has dropped from 168 to 140. Thank you so much.
(I'm wondering if it's the citalopram or ritalin or a combination of.)
Melanie on Dec, 7, 2012:
As a chronic hyperventilator myself, I can say with certainty that it's the Ritalin that's causing the hyperventilation. It's a stimulant, and stimulating the nervous system triggers hyperventilation.
