While taking Ativan prescribed by my Hospice, I started difficulty swallow which resulted in complete closure. After a week of this I was near death from dehydration.
Finding that a side effect of Ativan was diffulty in swallowing, I stopped taking it. My new Hospice gave me Haldol which increased all side effects. I contacted my personal physician, who, upon reviewing my xrays, prescribed 1/4 to 1/2 Viagra pill.
It worked in 30 minutes. He changed me to Cialas, which did not work as well. I am now taking 1/4 pill in the a.m. and l/4 pill in the p.m.
I am very sensitive to medications - therefore the small dose. I dropped Hospice.
