Paradoxical Reaction to Reglan
I was in Henry Ford hospital with pneumonia and became very nauseated. I told the nurse that I could only take zofran because I had had a reaction to compazine. She said she had never heard of that and i said just give me the zofran.
after she injected my IV...I lay back in my bed thinking oh great I'm going to be able to get rid of this horrible nausea and relax, when suddenly a giant wave of emotion hit me. I was so weak I could hardly move yet I managed to climb over the rail of the bed and grab the nurse by her jacket screamimg and demanding to know what she gave me.
She murmured Reglan that she didn't want to wait for zofran...OMG REGLAN was horrid. The reaction twice as bad. I tore off my gown and tried to tear out the IV..i had to get home and take a sleeping pill or something!!! Before i could get far, I was tackled sprawled naked on the floor with Ativan on the way.
The next day the doctor told me I should have a psychiatric eval??? I told him I don't know what happened that I totally panicked after Reglan and the same with compazine. He said I must have an anxiety disorder!! I can't believe he didn't know what had happened. I was very worried until my niece told me Reglan had totally put her over the edge, that it was almost the same as compazine. BEWARE!!
