Re: Hypertensive Crisis to LUKA and IsoM

Thanks you two, too, for posting!
That sounds like a horrific experience (Luka), and yes, IsoM, I had read about the pressor amines etc. back in '98, and then again after the last hypertensive crisis. I'm surprised I didn't have MORE of those episodes. But yes, it's possible I had "mini" episodes, now that I think back. At least once that I definitely now correlate (back in 1986, I think).... could have been the strawberry daiquiri that just gave me such a nasty headache..or perhaps I was off Nardil and on a Ludiomil trial. (not helpful).

You know, IsoM, I was soooo stuck on HAVING to have Nardil (because at least it was better than being off of it!) that I was willing to find someone who would administer it.. despite 4-5 ++ opinions of "DON'T GO THERE AGAIN!"...

But I thought that nifedipine was NOT conclusively the best agent, after more research, which is why I didn't investigate further. At this point, the EffexorXR has mitigated the worst of the depression (knock on wood), and frankly, I knew that I was only partially responsive to Nardil in the long term. I just didn't want to guineapig around...too stressful.

I will write again. LUKA, do write again too, I'm not too coherent right now, and boyfriend came home and multi-tasking....
