Background

Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken or applied to reduce inflammation and as an analgesic reducing pain in certain conditions. It is supplied as or contained in medications under a variety of trade names.  Zorvolex is one of them.

As the respondent does not say which high blood pressure tablet he was on I can't add this as a medication, but I have left in the comment as it is interesting

Details:
I experienced two horrible hallucinations when i was on this. The first it was early hours of the morning while i was in hospital asleep, i opened my eyes and saw like a demon nurse walking towards me, i was trying to scream but i was making quiet moaning noises instead, she came closer and closer with her arms stretched up in the air leaning forward. i blinked a few times and she went away. For the next couple of days i just assumed it was a very realistic dream i had. I was discharged a couple of days later and it was about 1pm when i started to feel dizzy and very tired to the point that i couldnt keep my eyes open. I only drifted off for about 10 minutes when i opened my eyes my friends were coming up my stairs and were in my sight as my room is an antic room. they asked me if i was coming downstairs and i tried replying that i felt ill and would be there soon, i asked for their help but noticed they were ingonoring me. everything was blury and i felt so dizzy i followed them half way down the stairs which i was really struggling to do i looked back at my bed and saw my physcial body still there, i blinked and i was back laid in my bed staring at the same spot. i tried about 4/5 times to go down the stairs but my physical body wasnt moving and kept putting me everytime i blinked. I looked down at my body and moved my legs but my physical body wasnt moving with my mental body. i was trying to get it to stick but it wouldnt.. i started to panick and thought oh my god im dead, im f**king dead. i finally managed to move and realised it was all a hullcination and was in such a state crying and shaking like mad because i thought i was dead. It was horrible and i stopped the diclofenac straight away. would much rather be in pain then go through anything like that again xx

This account reminded me of a disturbing reaction to HBP tablet i took years ago.I kept 'getting up in the morning and going about my business' then next thing i was back in bed and realising it was a dream but it would recur several times before I could wake up properly. The imagined reality was every bit as real as being awake,indeed (weirdly)more so as my senses were heightened not unlike in near death experience accounts.Not surprisingly it was unnerving so I asked for the med to be changed and had no further trouble.
