Hi! I have been going to a GI doctor for about a year. To make a long story short, after long list of tests being run (and being ordered to go to the er for more tests yesterday) I was told that my Dr. thought that I had a spastic colon. (Which I assume means IBS). I have been on a medication at a very low dose for anxiety for several years. I was told that one of the meds given could cause nervousness by the hospital staff.In fact, when they administered the medication they also gave me benadryl to curb the effects. I then reminded them that I was on an anti anxiety medication and I was still using the medication. . Some of the side effects of the med med listed are: dry mouth, drowsiness, blurred vision, dizziness, decreased sweating, constipation, loss of taste, headache, difficulty sleeping, or nervousness.
Took the med today which helped the cramping, however, I was extremely dizzy and anxious to the point that I could not concentrate. I had to leave work and have put in a call to the doctor to change the medication. (And I had to leave work yesterday in the middle of the day to go to the er per the Doctors orders). Is this normal to prescribe a medication to someone that can cause nervousness when the patient has already disclosed that they are on medication for anxiety?:mad:
