    As a clinical thereapist, I am interested in the meds you reacted to? I would want to know what was being treated.

    I have no problem sharing - it was Ambien CR. I have periodic insomnia but also severe obstructive sleep apnea. The Rx was prescribed by my pumponoligst. I also use a CPAP machine. Although this is getting a bit sidetracked, the psychiatrist refused me the opportunity to see a neurologist or sleep specialist and wouldn't permit my husband to bring my CPAP. She refused to consider that I could have any diagnosis other than one related to mental illness. But again, I digress ... I'm just still angry/bitter about the ordeal.

    To answer an earlier inquiry, after passing through the local E/R I was transferred to a psychiatric ward or what was referred to as a behavioral analysis unit.

    The weekend has been harried. I wanted to reply individually but the time got away from me. I've been reading all of the responses and I am sincerely appreciative of the thoughtful replies and incredible insight in this forum.

    Ultimately, this is going to boildown to consulting an attorney and probably soending a bit of cash. Of course, we don't have it to spare but I'm stuck at this point. I made a few calls this past Friday but didn't locate a professional skilled in this area. I have to start again tomorrow. Immediately after being discharged I sought "paperwork" with evidence of the judge's ruling that would be handle in situations such as this but I wasn't able to obtain such.

    I'm not going to ask the issuing authority. In my experience (not in this specific instance), that would be a huge mistake.

    I'm feeling discouraged but I'll press on ....

    Thank you all ...

    Sincerely,

    Look at the discharge diagnosis from your hospital bill. If is was medical ie drug reaction then that was why you were hospitalized and you do not have to mention anything else. It is the discharge diagnosis that matters not the admitting assumed diagnosis. It isnt perjury if you have good reason to beleive you are being honest. If it says something else you may need to go the long road with documentation.
