After being prescribed Omnaris, and using it for about a week or so, my boyfriend went up to bed around 10PM and took his dose of Omnaris and at the same time used an OTC Epinephrine inhaler. At 2:30 AM I woke up and seeing his light on, thought he was supposed to get up for work. I could not wake him, my son came in and tried and he could not wake him. The b/f was not rigid at all, infact was completely relaxed. My son explained it like someone who had been on a binge and you could not wake him up. After several minutes of trying to wake him, I called 911. The EMTs also could not wake him, took his BP- normal. Blood sugar was 184. About 10 minutes after they got here, the b/f became cooperative, but still did not seem aware. While I tried to help him get dressed, he was able to vocalize a need to use the bathroom- which I helped him with, and he was able to help me get him dressed. They got him out to the ambulance- he walked most of the way... but did not become aware of what was going on until halfway to the hospital- probably a good 20- 30 minutes or so from the time that I first tried to wake him up. Two days in the hospital for tests- So far all tests have come back with nothing significant. Regardless of that, the neurologist wants to call it a seizure because he apparently bit and/or clamped down on his tongue at some point. I think it may have been the Omnaris/ epinephrine combo. There have been no incidents for the last two weeks. A diagnosis of a seizure puts an end to his livelyhood. Any insights?
