Reported Results
Benefits:   There were no treatment benefits from this particular drug. My nausea was not controlled at all, in fact I felt more nauseaus after taking the medication.
Side effects:   I had severe restlessness, developed an intense feeling of anxiety, had an extreme desire to sit down, then lay down and went on to develop a dystonic reaction. I developed an intense feeling of doom, my stomach had feelings of cramps, knotting and pain. My neck felt tense and the ambulance was called and I was taken to the emergency dept of local hospital.
Comments:   Ambulance officers gave me pain relief and this settled my stomach of the knotting and cramping/pain. This also settled the feeling of doom. In emergency, after numerous examinations and questionning, abdo xray, I was given IV hydration x 2 litres and Ondansetron IV x 2 - 8 hours apart. I was observed in emergency overnight and went home the next morning with no side effects at all. Never will I take maxalon again!
