Cogentin in a IV was used for my migraine headache,instead of using narcotics to get rid of it they used this medicine. My headache was relieved in a half hour.All hospitals here are trying to stay away of narcotics because of the addictions it causes.We were told by the nurse that it was like a muscle relaxant to get rid of all the tension in your body.

I had a reaction to mirtazipine after taking the drug for 3 months. I would suddenly jerk about every 2 minutes or so without any warning at all. I was given cogentin IV and was ok in about 20-30 minutes. I waited 10 days and tried another dose ( to be sure it was not another one of the meds I take )and I started to get the same symptoms again, so I Have DCd it for good. Quite a weird sensation...hard to describe. I have seen Cogentin used 7-8 times when I worked in the ER and always with good results.Read More Read Less
