My pharmacy made a mistake when filling my prescription last week. The label was correct but the medication ended up being trazadone instead of tramadol.
After a night that was crazy and terrifying I ended up having a seizure. The next day is a blur and I just remember being too exhausted to reach down to get a sip of water from a cup next to my bed. I have been improving each day but still feel pretty foggy and have trouble coming up with words. My psychiatrist said that I had seratonin syndrome caused by the combination of the Pristiq (that I have been in for 3+ years), tramadol (have been taking for over a year) and the culprit of causing the seratonin syndrome was the addition of the pharmacys mistake of trazadone. I have taken trazadone before with out any issues also.
My questions to those that have experienced this awful event. How long did the mental fogginess last? I have had this tingling/numb feeling going down both of my arms ever since this event happened. It comes and goes throughout the day but it's not getting any better (or worse). I probably get 25 + times a day where I have to stop what I am doing and shake my hands or wiggle my fingers to make it go away for a little bit. It also wakes me up at night but so do the scary as hell post seratonin syndrome "dreams" that feel way too real.
Thank you for any insight since there is limited information out there regarding this.
