Vaso Vagal

I am sopposed to have had (per my doctor) a vaso vagal response from coughing. This while taking new medication to me (Neurontin and Zyprexa) to eliminate two other medications (vallium and vicodin) which I have been on for years (vallium 30 years and vicodin since 1996). I collapsed at my desk and crushed my aluminum trash can sitting beside it. I have absolutly no memory of it but my dauthter says I was on the floor from 3-4 minutes and since she is in the trade (CNA) I can take her word for it. If anyone out there see's this and feels like writeing me I would appreciate it greatly. This docotor has me up on 2700 mg of Neurontin and 10mg of zyprexa. Personally I feel like I was better off taking 3 10 mg of vallium a day and the pain killer when I needed them. I should add I was put on the vallium after Vietnam when I had an ulcer in 1968 and the pain killer account of my fifth lower lumbar, carpal tunnel, and tendonitis as well as bursitis in my shoulder. I feel like I got evey itis there is. !!!!!. Sincerely.
