Well, I went to the doctor yesterday about the dizziness that I keep getting. They did an EKG and blood work, everything came out normal. Only thing that they can think of, is that I started taking St Johns Wort and Ginseng... The Dr started yelling at me and telling me how bad that the stuff is for you.. It can cause you to bleed and all types of crap! I almost started crying. I researched and researched... I just wanted to be healthy! So I am back on the Prozac and off the other stuff. I have not had a dizzy spell yesterday or so far this morning. I am so glad that something told me to tell her what I was taking.
I have to go for a whole load of blood work on Friday morning since I have to fast 12 hours first. So I will go Fri after dropping the kids off at school.

    Glad to hear it wasn't your BP or something really serious and that it stopped just with avoiding a product!

    Glad you caught it before you got worse. I am a retired nurse an I too do somethings that my Dr.has questioned. I now try to only take what he prescribes because nowdays you never know what kind of reaction you my get from what you are eating or taking. An example for me was last year I ate strawberries an broke out in a rash. Dr.said you are allergic to strawberries. Okay. But later found out it was the product they washed the berries off I was allergic to now the strawberry itself. So be careful what you take or eat. emoticon
