I was given Haldol intravenously the other
night for simple leaving the hospital. I put on a hold for making making threats against my life. I was brought back where I simple sat in my room waiting for the whole thing
to be over when the nurse came in and said

back but I loss….I’m so angry over all this. I’m 62 have heat condition and seizures and if I didn’t kill myself that night they would have..do I have recourse
Measures designed to minimize stress can be useful in treating dyspnea. Exertion on the part of the patient can be limited by providing a bedside commode, using a wheelchair for transport and avoiding exposure to hot, humid weather or extreme temperatures. Postural drainage techniques may be helpful. Family members should be taught to inquire specifically about the patient's comfort, in that external signs may appear quite distressing to the family but may not seem unusual to the patient. Family members and friends can lessen the patient's distress by avoiding disagreements in front of the patient.
We hope the following lists of reported or suspected herb and supplement-drug interactions will help give you a better understanding of when you can or cannot take certain herbs and drugs together and why. This list is by no means exhaustive or complete. In the listing of interactions by category of drug we sometimes give examples of drugs found in certain categories. There may be quite a number of different drugs in these categories, but we have only listed some of the more familiar ones. So if you don’t find certain drugs in the examples we have given it doesn’t mean they are not included in that particular category. As information on herb/supplement-drug interactions continues to be published we will endeavor to update it.
The herb-drug interactions have been classified in two ways: 1) Category of Drug and 2) Herb or Supplement . Both sections are listed alphabetically.
