  • Bless you Lesley, what a truly horrible experience for you and your husband. Do go and see your GP when you can and tell her exactly what happened. You seemed to have had a very severe reaction. Let us know how you get on. Feel better soon. xxxx

  • I whent back to doctors to day he could not apologies enough about the pills that made me go in to hospital but I told him it was not my fault but I will never take them again I have now started with the shaking and still been sick the doctor sed it will be in my system for a few days now I hope so xx

  • Thanks for the update Lesley and get well very soon. Take care. xxx

  • How frightening - a similar thing happened to my husband. He was given tablets by a locom doctor for a COPD exacerbation which had such a bad reaction - he was hallucinating, throwing up, shaking and really affected his breathing. He ended up in hospital for two days! So glad that you have recovered. Take good care and make a note of the tablets - never to be taken again. Lots of love TAD xx

  • so sorry for what you went threw. different people react to different drugs. dont be afraid to try again for the pain. they will make sure the base of the med you were on is not on new one. also ask what to write for allergies and add this med as one. hope you recover quickly.

  • How awful for you (and your husband!) but, do go back to your GP - it sounds to me as though you are allergic to that medication, and there must be something that could help you. Good luck!! :)
