Pneumonitis Due to Oren-gedoku-to (Coptis Detoxifying Decoction). Intern Med. 2019;58(20):3019-3023 Authors: Mochizuki N, Ano S, Kikuchi N, Sakai C, Masuda M, Kondo Y, Ishii Y Abstract A 54-year-old man started to take oren-gedoku-to (coptis detoxifying decoction) because he was experiencing chronic hot flashes, night sweats and insomnia. He developed a high fever from the day of intake. At day 17, he stopped taking oren-gedoku-to because of malaise and chills, and he was admitted to our hospital. Drug-induced pneumonitis was suspected, and all drugs were stopped. Consequently, his symptoms, laboratory data and chest X-ray findings markedly improved. The results of a lymphocyte stimulation test were positive for oren-gedoku-to and one of its components, ougon (Baikal skullcap). Based on these findings, we diagnosed him with pneumonitis caused by ougon. PMID: 31611510 [PubMed - in process]

Long vent incoming. Please disregard the ironic screenname. I usually score well above average on our weekly exams. This past week I became super motivated to do as well as I possibly can. I studied 34 hours since Monday a.m. just for ochem. I followed the study guide to a T. Studying became all that I do. I wasn't able to get through all the material as I was being so thorough. I did learn about 80% of the material completely. I developed insomnia and slept 2.5 hrs last night and 4hrs... Just failed an Ochem exam.
