Yesterday I had a small procedure requiring a lidocaine shot. The lidocaine had a small amount of epinephrine in it.
This was done around 11:30. about 3 hours later I was more dizzy then normal. The night was horrible, tossing and turning
and I was so much dizzier I knew I was dizzy as I slept. 3:30am I got up and was walking so wobbly, it was crazy, Ifelt like
any minute I was going to spin. 5:30am I tried moving tomy side, great no spin. 7:00 I tried the other side, great no spin.
I was also nauseas. This morning, I dont feel like that anymore, just feel kinda ugh… thinking its the anxiety, as vertigo
will take me as a prisoner everytime and scare me beyond belief. Im finally able to get into bed without fear. Last vertigo was Nov 1.
anyhow, I looked up online and the drug interaction says Nortriptyline taking with lidocaine with epinephrine is a major concern,
and pretty much dont do it. the pharmacist agreed that this probably ramped up my weak vestibular system. I talked to 3. and 2/3 said yes,
3rd wasn’t sure.
So mav friends, do any of you have any stories to share or experience with this???
Its so upsetting to have a terrible scary night, then wake up to a call from work saying if you dont make it back by 4/9 then we have
to fill your position. I finally started feeling like I was on the road to recovery, then this!! Im so mad. Hope it will be 100% gone by tomorrow
and it doesn’t leave any lingering crap behind.
I did take 1/2 xanax last night at 3:30 and one this morning at 8:30 just to I dont know, try and help myself along.
