Actiq Withdrawal Syndrome Causes and Reviews


Delirium is a condition that features rapidly changing mental states. It causes confusion and changes in behavior. Besides falling in and out of consciousness, there may be problems with

  • Attention and awareness
  • Thinking and memory
  • Emotion
  • Muscle control
  • Sleeping and waking

Causes of delirium include medications, poisoning, serious illnesses or infections, and severe pain. It can also be part of some mental illnesses or dementia.

Delirium and dementia have similar symptoms, so it can be hard to tell them apart. They can also occur together. Delirium starts suddenly and can cause hallucinations. The symptoms may get better or worse, and can last for hours or weeks. On the other hand, dementia develops slowly and does not cause hallucinations. The symptoms are stable, and may last for months or years.

Delirium tremens is a serious type of alcohol withdrawal syndrome. It usually happens to people who stop drinking after years of alcohol abuse.

People with delirium often, though not always, make a full recovery after their underlying illness is treated.


Actiq Withdrawal Syndrome 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.
