- Claritin 24 hour causing bladder control loss in child. not a lot of information out there on this.
Helped his cough and don't know whether to try Zyrtec or something like that. Tried Benadryl for couple of days and no help with cough and so far no il side effect including bladder control
- I have less pain from my trigeminal neuralgia when i'm manic.
Has anyone had a relief of pain when they are manic?
- My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.

Cannot control my bladder. If I have to go I have to go and need to be able to make it to the toilet otherwise I wet myself. Could this be connected to the AVN and hypothyroidism?
