Concomitant therapy included prednisone and PRILOSEC. In March 2009 the patient experienced difficulty breathing. She was taken to the hospital and "as per mom she was given an adult dose of morphine and went into respiratory failure". She later was unable to smile or move her face. Her cranial nerves were affected and she was seen by neurology. Later she was sent to a hospital for myasthenia gravis crisis.
