I'm glad I have something to treat the bleeding. But, feel I will only ... Show Full Comment

Whenever I take Stimate Nasal Spray, I get a flushed face and laugh at everything. They noticed this in the hospital when they were testing how well Stimate would work with me and told me that it's normal to get "giddy."

I have used Stimate since it came on the market many years ago, on an "as needed" basis, with no side effects. My bleeding time goes from "greater than 20 minutes" to seven or eight minutes (within normal range) within an hour after dosing. This makes it possible for me to have medical and dental procedures that doctors might otherwise be unwilling to perform. One of my daughte ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This medication does work, but the side effects are extremely nasty. I get very sick, dizzy, headache, hot flashes, sick to my stomach, things you don't want to take if you're already taking it for bleeding. I would always try to convince my mom that I didn't need it and "the bleeding would stop eventually" just to avoid taking it.
