> Please just be aware of the hypertensive thing and casulty departments. I read from a UK poster (I can't remember his name now) that he had a hypertensive reaction and went to casulty - the docs there didn't understand and tried to give him a shot for serontin syndrome and not the antidote nif(something - I can't remember!) to bring the BP down. He refused the shot and went home and took the antidote that he had....alittle shocking I know....
