I want to tell my story of taking Centrum Aquaburst.
Day 1. In hopes of improving my skin, I went to a pharmacy to buy multivitamins. I usually take Centrum pills, but this time I found this soluble powder, which I decided to try. I also had a terrible headache that day, and several pills of 500 mg Tylenol didn't help. This meant that my upper blood pressure was likely above 120 and all I could do is finish my day, go home and try to relax. Now, just a few minutes after I took 1 pack of centrum, I felt a relief. Wow, I thought, so my headaches have been due to lack of some chemicals in my body! I am totally taking more tomorrow!
Day 2. Minor headache in the morning, as usual, eliminated by the magic Centrum. "Clarity" of perception and calmness. Damn, I was stressed all these years.
Day 3. I noticed that in addition to clarity and calmness I was somewhat slow. At that point, I recalled Celexa and Symbalta, ad-s I was prescribed a few years ago for headaches. I was feeling similar now. OK, I have to be cautious and watch for side effects and withdrawal.
My guess is that it's some of the minerals. Zinc, for example, is used to treat depression and schizophrenia. It improves mood and focus. And, i already got focused enough to work patiently for 2 hours without looking at the clock or youtube.
Day 4. My boyfriend got sick with cold. I gave him a pack, and 10 mins after, he stopped coughing, got up the coach and went shopping. He also asked me if had more.
Day 5. After drinking afternoon tea, I felt really sleepy and relaxed. My eyes were just shutting down. However, I could not fall asleep. I had minor hallucinations with my eyes closed, as if I had fever. Hm, that must've been because I took another headache pill.
Day 6. Another pack in the morning. I am calm and focused. Towards afternoon, I got sleepy, a little sick, and started feeling something weird in my chest. Also, confused and dizzy, off balance, but I was still calm. My speech became a bit slurry. On the subway in the evening, I started to lose control. I felt like I was about to stop understanding what's going on, who I am and what I am doing here. I reminded myself in my head, 'I am on the subway, this is X station, my name is Z, my parents live at Y, I am going to see my boyfriend whose name is N."
This wasn't improving, so we went to emergency. On my way there, I had muscle spasms in my arms, legs and face, and I thought that I was going into overall paralysis and dying. I couldn't walk or move my arms when we arrived. At the hospital, they checked my blood pressure and heart rate - 132/93 and 111 resp. However, I calmed down and we left.
Terrible sleep again, but I was stable now.
Today. No intake. Still dizzy and out of it. Calm happiness is followed by a very unpleasant hostile feeling and back. In euphoria, I listen to music and cry, and enjoy it. 'Lithium' by Evanescence is the song of the day. I am stable, hoping that my condition improves tomorrow.
My boyfriend us totally fine, even though he overdosed.
Take Centrum with caution. I will update on my state if ppl find this interesting.
