Actiq Loss Of Consciousness Causes and Reviews


Reye syndrome is a rare illness that can affect the blood, liver, and brain of someone who has recently had a viral infection. It always follows another illness. Although it mostly affects children and teens, anyone can get it. It can develop quickly and without warning. It is most common during flu season. Symptoms include

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Listlessness
  • Personality change - such as irritability, combativeness or confusion
  • Delirium
  • Convulsions
  • Loss of consciousness

If these symptoms occur soon after a viral illness, seek medical attention immediately. Reye syndrome can lead to a coma and brain death, so quick diagnosis and treatment are critical. Treatment focuses on preventing brain damage. There is no cure.

The cause of Reye syndrome is unknown. Studies have shown that taking aspirin increases the risk of getting it. Because of that, health care professionals now recommend other pain relievers for young patients.

Actiq Loss Of Consciousness Reviews

Fri, 20 Aug 2010
My mom, aged 77, just completed her 3rd ipi infusion Wed 8/18. It started in her lungs. Brain metastisis with removal of one tumor June 9, 2010. 4-5 small tumors still. She's not 100% mentally alert, but she tells us the pain from the tumors on her upper thign feel like blistering sunburn. She has not been eating lately, only drinking boost. Her oncologist is treating the pain on her legs wtih lidocaine patches and that seems to help. She also has a fentanyl patch on her arm and uses Actiq 'lollipops's for pain control.
