    so heavily medicated as to ~

    I was so heavily medicated as to suffer a number of severe complications.

    I was so heavily medicated that I suffer a number of severe complications.



    Are these two sentences grammatically correct?

    and is there any difference in meaning between the two?

    Thanks

    Now they are both grammatical and they mean the same. The second one is much more likely.
