Thanks for the reply. I know EXACTLY what you mean by the Reglan. They gave it to me when I started having pancreatitas due to deformed pancreas when I was 16 years old, and at the time didnt know thats what gave it to me. Then I got it again when I was 18, and is the worst thing imaginable, I rather suffer from the worst pain ever without pain meds then ever take Reglan or Compazine again. I always leave the room in the ER when I get it, I remember pleading with the doctor to make "it" go away. I remember feeling restless, uncomfortable, cold, shaky, depressed, suicidal due to the major discomfort, its just the worst feeling in the world ever to go thru, I rather suffer thru gallstones and pancreatitas pains then ever have that feeling again. They call it a Dystonic Effect or Dystonia. It's not an allergic reation but actually a SIDE EFFECT!!! Isnt that crazy??? Benadryl makes it go away if you get it fast enough especially thru IV, if they take too long to give it to you, it can some what calm it down but still make you uncomfortable. I wouldn't even let them give it to my kids when they got sick, I made them give them Zofran, I couldn't imagaine having my poor little babies go thru it. I still have nightmares from it too and has given my a phobia from the ER's, I wouldn't even pray for my worst enemies to go thru it, its that terrible!!!
I have gotten use to it, by the 2nd day, I was ok, and they do work well for that BT pain, I have been in really bad shape these last cpl of days, Both kidneys are hurting, I can barely walk and the pain is pretty intense,just that pressure and constant ache and someone taking a hot screewdriver and jamming it in my back and twisting and turning and deep, unfortunately when I get this bad there is not much that can help with the pain, I keep taking it,because I think if I am in this much pain with the meds, I could not imagine how I would be with out them...So I am hoping this will let up soon, trying to get out of my chair or the couch to use the bathroom, just about kills me,so forget about getting up to make something to eat, thank-goodness for the kids they are a lifesver at these times..I hope you have been doing ok, and everyone everyone else has been having some good days..
Take Care Everyone
I am not sure, I am in Ontario, Canada and that was what I was prescribed..
