I'm in my 40's and in good health, but over the past 7 or 8 years I've had mild to severe reactions (not allergic reactions) to many different medications...even over the counter. For example, I once ended up in the ER with atrial fibrillation after taking Benedry (even though I'd taken that before with no problems), my blood pressure drops dangerously when I've taken laxatives, and Tylenol gives me vertigo. Recently, when I had an eye exam, the drops given to dilate the eyes (which contains Atropine) caused a concerning reaction that involved my heart.
I understand that all medications have side-effects, but it seems like my body is on high alert and is reacting to just about anything! It's not like I'm taking medications all the time either, I prefer the more natural route. But, I can't help but worry about this. It makes me afraid to even see a doctor anymore. Does anyone else experience something like this?Answer Question
