Relpax is a migraine medication. Do you take antidepressants at all? I am giving you a link to read about what meds should not be mixed with Relpax such as Celexa etc.. which are antidepressants. It's very important to tell each physician exactley what meds you are on when they prescribe something new. If this is something you suspect your doctor made an error, & you have permanent damage ( I don't normally advocate suing a doctor) you may wish to contact an attorney...
There is something called serotonin syndrome which can cause seizures and strokes if you take the wrong medications together. I know on triptans which Relpax is a member, they always warn about serotonin syndrome . Taking the triptans with antidepressants is the key. You HAVE to listen to your doctor about how much and when you can take of each medication or it can lead to this symptoms. I am hoping that you are just asking, and have suffered from no real harm
I got this list of side effects for Relpax directly off Drugs.com. One of the more severe is symptoms of stroke. I always use the My Mednotes to help me understand drug, conditions and food interactions and double check the allergic reaction symptoms, if I'm having unusual symptoms. Here's the list:
