adverse Reactions|| |
|No dependency problems:||
Time Taken: <2 days
After a leg operation, I had several doses of Panadol IV. ||Date:
16 October 2010 |
Had significant reactions to the IV version each time and within a few seconds of it being administered. I didn't connect the fainting, difficult breathing, nausea, apprehension and the near loss of consciousness as Panadol related as I can tolerate the tablets in low doses well. The nurse attending me realised that the reactions were happening each time she gave me the IV Panadol. It had been ordered by my surgeon who had used it extensively in France without a problem and was quite shocked that I had a reaction. (This happened to me in Australia.)
Found it offered good pain relief in both forms, tablets and IV. When taken off it by the surgeon, he was at a loss as to what to give me as I am allergic to Morphine (swelling of face and lips, fainting, nausea, rash and difficulty breathing). Also allergic to some dental aneasthetics incl. Scandonest and some of the older pre-meds.
