Solange decided to take some Nyquil tablets to on the plane while heading back to L.A. yesterday after the Armani Store opening. The next thing she knew, she was in a hospital bed. Here is the full story:
“R&B star SOLANGE KNOWLES was admitted to hospital when she collapsed after downing flu pills on a flight out of New York on Tuesday night (17Feb09). Beyonce’s younger sister was treated by medics after taking the capsules onboard a plane and suffering an adverse reaction to the medication.
In a series of Twitter postings during the flight, she told fans how she had swallowed NyQuil tablets to treat a cold.
“I took a nyquil and i think maybe im getting high off it because im not sleeping. maybe i should close my eyes… think im certified loosing (sic) it on nyquil. going to sleep before i start freestyling on the plane… omg i didnt know nyquil could do this to you. i took the pills tho. cant stomach cough syrup. trying to be proactive on this flight.”
She then added:
“Never taking nyquil again. I feel so weird.”
She then logged on again and wrote:
“Woaah…… How’d I end up in the hospital? Woke up to 8 random people over me, laid out on the floor in baggage claim!… Guess I passed out! Scary. Hooked up to IV now . Apparantly I’m super dehydrated….I’ve never passed out before. S**t was like the movies. People standing over me saying ‘hello’… My mom is the best. LOL. She’s like ‘Ain’t nothing wrong with this girl, she need some water and rest… Pull up the car!’ LOL I’m like still in shock. I’ve never passed out before. Think it was the nyquil too. I felt weird when I woke up. This has been the day from hell. I’m done with the second IV. I just want to get in the bed and lay with Julez. That’s all I want.”
The singer later confirmed she had been released following treatment, writing:
“I’m out! yay!… they let me go….. Rest. Water. Rest. Water.”source
I find it hilarious that Mamma Tina was ready to stick a band-aid on it and go home. I tell you, those Knowles' are some tough cookies. Lol.
