Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • I went to my Dr. and asked about seeing a rheumatologist to find out if I had fibromyalgia. I was in a lot of pain and it was the day after the anniversary of my father's death. She gave me a depression test and prescribed the medication. I took it and started going into a dystonic reaction. My muscles were seizing, I could not communicate, and my pain level increased drastically. The Dr. at the ER recognized that it was dystonia and gave me benedryl. I have never fully recovered though. Afterwards, I began having pseudo-seizures and panic attacks regularly and also continue to have difficulties communicating and am not who I used to be. This has been devastating to my life and I have lost several jobs due to it. This was in June of 2011 and I am still having issues regularly.
