LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS and Seroquel

LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS Symptoms and Causes

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.

After taking 300 mgm a day of seroquel, I gained 30 lbs over a period of 3 months with all the symptoms of metabolic syndrome. Now I am unable to lose that weight even though I no longer take the medicati9on

After taking Seroquel for about two weeks, I came down with quite serious laryngitis. I've had it for about a week and it is not getting any better. I don't have a cold or sore throat and can't think of any other reason for this. Could this be cau

Doing range of motion exercises on the neck with the head is an excellent way of treating cronic insomonia. >:o O:-)

I also had to increase the weight for my pendulum exercises to make easier to adjust my shoulder. :)

I also had to raise my arms up and down behind my head in order to adjust the top of my neck.

I am having the same experience. I also had been taking Seroquel for about 2 weeks when I began to lose my voice. I am researching today because my laryngitis is practically 100% today.

I Believe Seroquel killed my husband. He tried to get help with depression and suiside and seroquel made him worse. I totally believe this awful drug killed him and he was only 45. I miss him terribly and hope I can help to keep suiside patients off

I had such severe side effects I thought I was going insane. My husband even got out the video camera to show me how bad it was. I rocked and rocked back and forth, my entire body shook involuntarily, I paced, I didn't sleep,I couldn't rest or relax

Have taken hydrea for a year because my spleen had increased in size. I have noticed increased loss of memory and some confusion for the past couple of months. I take 500 mg every other day and 1000 mg every other day.

I am having cramps, muscle pain, memory loss, I have been on Revlmid for about 1 year. Does anybody else my age have this disease, I am only 46 yr woman.

I have experienced weight loss of a pound a month for the last 2 years, since taking 100 mcg per day. My dr. can find no cause for this loss. I also have taken Metformin for about the same amount of time.

I have seen a significant loss of hair after about three months. I went to my dermatologist and told her that I feel that it is from Solodyn and she sent me to have blood work done thinking I may be anemic or I have a thyroid problem.

Anon- I would say the weed would cause the MOST memory loss used over time also depending on how strong it is ie, (haze, kush....dro...regs from 60's with seeds) THE STONGER it is the faster the brain cells go! As far as the valium/dia

LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS Clinical Trials and Studies

Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
