Whenever I take Stimate Nasal Spray, I get a flushed face and laugh at everything. They noticed this in the hospital when they were testing how well Stimate would work with me and told me that it's normal to get "giddy." Now I have dentist's that think I'm high on weed when I go in to get a filling or when I got my wisdom teeth extracted. Other than the dentist's, this th ... Show Full Comment
