I am searching for legal help!
After applying “Minoxidil” to a bald spot on my scalp I had a severe life threatening reaction. My pulse rate gradually climbed to 240+ at which time my wife dialed 911. I could not be moved from my home until EMS and an EMS physician who was rushed in could lower my heart rate. I am now in constant fear of a recurrence and will not be without emergency medication that I carry in my wallet. I came very close to death!
The worse part of this scenario is the fact that the EMS team (2 were in my home) did not know how to stop the rapid pulse rate, my wife and I heard them ask the ER physician what to do the next time they have a similar situation! My health has been permanently and adversely affected, I have an almost constant irregular heartbeat and I’m unable to be involved with any activity that causes stress, have not been able to work since the initial adverse reaction.
I’m just now inquiring about a possible lawsuit after an associate mentioned hearing about the connection between rapid uncontrolled pulse rate and Minoxidil/Rogaine, the EMS trip to the local hospital took place March 18th 2010, my medical condition is worsening. Until now anyone associated with this disaster ever relayed the connection or any info between this dangerous drug and what happened to me, not in the ER or our family physician?
I am not a lawyer and the purpose of the blog is to give medical information, not legal advice.
Minoxidil can drop blood pressure if greatly absorbed from heavy applications; however, I have never heard of anything like you reported.
