received during tilt table test. was also taking adderall xr 40mg <-(high dose) . worst experience ever!! i have had 3 children no with no pain medicine, and would never repeat this test on isoproterenol. my first test with no meds, but my adderall was fine, it was when they put isoproterenol in my iv. when i was tilted into standing position, my heart felt like it was going to bust! it hurt and pounded so hard, then my head hurt like it to was going to rupture, my veins felt if they closed up. it felt as if my heart pounding was filling itself, and my head and neck with blood, and couldent excape because my veins were closed. my heart hurt worse and worse. i tryed to pull my iv out and told doctors i was dieing. they held me down "to see if i would faint" well i didn't but i flat lined, they tilted me back into laying position,and stopped the isoproterenol in my iv, i was stripped and thrown cold rags on me. my heart rate and BP picked up by itself, thank god, no other meds or shock was needed, it picked up by itself. i was conscious threw the hole test, the doctor said most people have passed out when in the condition of my heart and BP WERE! i really was not expecting this when i received a tilt table test. they said i failed to vaso depressor sycope, but i dont think i have this because i NEVER repeat NEVER, passed out or fainted in my liFe, i received the test because i was seeing stars, tunnels and blurry vision, i never fainted tho. NOW i have problems with my aorta arch. before this medicine my hart aorta and vessels were fine. i blame this medicine. do you research before taking this med. oh yea, i am not old, i am 22 years of age! and now with AORTIC ANEURYSM!! thanks isoproterenol.Read More Read Less
