In reply to What meds can I use?, posted by JACJ on August 25, 2005, at 19:42:21
> I am trying to regain a normal life. I won't even take a children's aspirin b/c I am afraid of what it will do to me. This is no way to live but after what I went thru I am just plain scared. I am so afraid if I take any drug it will produce a dystonic effect or cause me to go psychotic. I don't know what meds cross over. What can I use for pain? What anesthesia can I use?
I'm a little confused. What's your diagnosis? What did you go through? Have you had problems with meds in the past? What meds cross over what? Your anesthesiologist usually chooses the anesthesia if you're having surgery, but he or she should ask you about any sensitivities or reactions you've had in the past.
