Have you ever taken medication that has made you worse, not better?

I think it is important that people know sometimes finding the right medication takes trial and error. Sometimes, things can get worse and the need for new medication is needed.

Have you ever found that a medication has made you worse, not better?

Eh, not an antipsychotic - but I discovered I became allergic to penicillin when I started blistering everywhere. It's a good job I got taken off it when I did, my arms were entirely purple the following week! :oops:

I tried a new blood pressure med a year ago and it sent me right to the hospital because I couldn't breathe. It was very scary.
That also does not sound pleasant. I hate medicine at the best of times, so if I had a negative reaction like this I think it would take me a long while to trust any again.
