... spinal cath for delivery of my Prialt. Do any of you have experience with this medication? or med delivery system. My pump is a SynchroMed II. It was installed in May 09
Yes. I have been diagnosed with full body rsd since March 2001. I have had spinal cath i.e.interthecal pump since Sept. 2003. Dilaudid was medication used on me first, but just 5 months ago the medication lost it's ability to work well. They added Prialt three weeks ago. After 12 days I could feel effect. What a relief to have the extreme burn fade abit again... My pump is by medtronics. I am worried because I may be having some side affects. Sleeplessness, nausea, vomiting (just once starting this evening) dizziness. If this persists tomorrow I will call doctor on call. I hope it will pass. I don't want to go back to the extreme pain I just got out of. So worried.
I also have full body RSD and I got a Prialt pump (made by MedTronics) in January. Because of how serious my situation was (My leg was swollen to 8 times its size and was ripping open,) they actually started off really high because I was really close to losing my leg. I had a lot of terrible responses on my way to getting to the right dosage. I had a lot of horrible responses ( most of which I don't remember, and I still have some side effects that I hate. But honestly I would do it again in a heartbeat.
