                starreys, my son had what looked like a seizure when he first moved into his apartment.  He walked into the empty dining room and grabbed ahold of the hanging chandelier and practically ripped it out of the ceiling he shook so violently for approximately a 2-3 minutes. His eyes were glazed over as if he were looking into another world and not responding.  I tore his hands off the candelier and literally put...

                      I'm sorry, I almost forgot. For the heart and vascular system, my son is on Metopolol Tartrate for rapid heartbeat, Artorovastin for very high cholesterol, and Metformin for very high blood sugar.  He is not eating well, so his body responds with manufacturing more sugar in his blood.  I just wish he would eat solid food.  I have him on fortifed glucose control Ensures and Boosts.
