Dear Dr. I resent had surgery on my shoulder and the medication the Dr. put me on started me to pass out. Would that be from an allergic reaction to the medication?

Hi needhelp112268,

First of all I am not a doctor.  The doctor who gave you the medication for
your shoulder to take after your surgery needs to know that the medication
he or she gave you made you pass out or faint. That is a serious reaction
from taking this medication, not necessarily an allergic reaction, but either
way you need to tell that doctor that this medicine made you faint.
So call that doctor's office and make an appointment to see him. Say you
want a follow up appointment and then tell that doctor that this medicine
doesn't agree with you so he can give you another medication and so that
this doctor can record the other medication as making you unwell. Good
luck to you. Eve.

I agree.  Call the surgeon and tell him what's going on.  Post-surgical followup is expected from the patient.  You will not be charged, so don't be afraid.
