... labile emotional swings with an initial 15 mg. dose or more?
Bill Yes some of these are listed as possible problems sounds like it depends on what med they are using it with but they are listed as rare but rare or not you had better call your doctor today and let him know one dose you should not get this.And this drug is used many times to make other medication work better for the patient rarely is it used just by itself..maybe in mild cases... Please call your doctor this morning you should not have to deal with these side effects..good luck
Yes this happened to me. I took one dose and it was a living hell for the next 48 hours. I couldn't sit still and felt like something was on me all the time also that something bad was about to happen. I was on a med for sleep at the time that would only give me 4 to 5 hours of respite from that horror. By the time the 72 hours were over I swore I would never take it again and I haven't.
My new doctor accepts that as she does with all my concerns about meds. Being Bipolar is bad enough but at least I have a say in my treatment now as well as being relatively stable.
Hope that helps and makes you feel less alone.
