My mum was admitted into hospital on the 16th of august, she was in because something was wrong with her liver ( nor life threatening ) she was moved from A&E onto an assessment ward, she was been quite sick, ( she is allergic to quite a lot of medication, anti sickness drugs been one of them) a nurse came to her with an injection with cyclizine in it, I asked the nurse what was it in the injection she told me it's an anti sickness drug, I told her not to give her it because she was severally allergic to the drug, the doctor was also there, she don't worry she'll be fine it's a different drug as she started to look through my mum's notes, then said ok we will give it a bit at a time, but the nurse had given her it all. Straight away my mum went drip white she couldn't talk she had cold sweats, she put her hand to her head straight away, they said don't worry we will check her every ten minutes, long story short she got worse her blood pressure shot through the roof 1hr later my mum was fitting was put into an induced coma taken to ICU
She was taken for a brain scan it should she'd had a massive bleed on her brain, she was then taken to another hospital to undergo brain surgery, she was in ICU for ten days, five and a half weeks on she is still in hospital left with brain damage, her MRI scan shows she had no underlying issues that could have coused the brain hemorrhage, only the fact she was given a drug that she was allergic to that sent her blood pressure so high it coursed a bleed on her brain
How can a drug be so so dangerous
It has deverstated our world and ruined my mum's life for ever
I would be very grateful to hear if other people have suffered a reaction the same as my mum
I will be writing to the drug company too
