I haven't read all the responses to you Noa, I'll do that as soon as I'm done. I have *lots* of experience with greying-out and completely blacking-out! So, I take a few of the same meds as you do, I too have fainted due to severe anemia, I have fainted and afterwards tested positive for hypoglycemia, as well as the occasional positive TSH test(I think that's the name? Positive for "temporary" hypothyroidism -you're the pro on that one Noa!).

The combo of my new p-doc forgetting to straighten out my Serzone prescription at my new pharmacy has left me with a mere 300 mgs for since yesterday. Last night this resulted in a massive blinding headache, an extremely queasy feeling, and kind of "out-of-it" sort of thing. I sat around not really doing anything, not reading, just staring off into space. I had the same thing happen for the last 1 1/2 hours, started exactly when I would normally have taken my serzone. Kind of came out of it a little bit ago and saw your message (to which I'm now replying!).

Adderall, I'm taking 40 mgs and have never had a black-out or faint that appeared connected to this med in any way. I've taken Adderall alone, w/ prozac, wellbutrin, amitriptyline, serzone, neurontin, and in a multitude of combinations with those meds, and not once has the Adderall proven to be the problem. Of course, this unfortunately only really applies to me and not necessarily to your situation.

My uneducated guess would be the missed Serzone and Cytomel, with compounding factors such as fatigue (or trying to wake up your body/brain--lack of oxygen--that's the whole purpose of yawning in the first place), and no glucose stabilizing food fueling your brain/body (like protein?). Did you sleep well last night, your apnea still being taken care of?

I am inordinately vulnerable to fainting when I haven't eaten, haven't slept, haven't taken certain meds (Serzone, Neurontin being the biggies at this point),and haven't totally woken up yet, or am getting hit with a second wave of fatigue. I would encourage you to get your thyroid levels checked soon, that might give you some clues. All my prayers and thoughts are with you ((((Noa))))


P.S. I'm sorry Noa, I just noticed that you posted this yesterday! So please read my tone as not so direly urgent :-) You still have my thoughts and prayers, although belatedly.
