prialt had horrible side effects for me... confusion,paranoia, irritability, fits of rage, did not feel comfortable in my own skin. the prialt has been out of the pump 3 weeks now, but still not feeling myself. alot of the confusion still there and just do not feel right, and now am having a hard time catching my breath and bec oming winded easily. could I still be experiencing side effects from the drug prialt? and could the shortness of breath be a part of that. It is reallt starting to concern me. Thank you.

I also had problems with the prialt just from the trials, even when we reduced it. My doctor switched to dilaudid (sp?) and the pump was put in a week ago... I am still in equivalent pain but they keep saying we have to GO SLOW. I want to get this show on the road. He talks about adding prialt later... no thank you!!!
