Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • The symptoms 1 and 2 have been worse over the past 2 weeks. I have had the nasal dryness for about 4 months and use a nasal water spray to help relieve this as this is probably as side effect of the Topamax ??


  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • I have a colostomy, hypertension, hypothroidism, weakened immune system, chronic depression, renal failure - stage 2, liver disease, arthritis, and fybromyalgia.
    I have been cold for two days, ache in my back and liver, neck is stiff, throat is sore, body temp is 96.3, b/P is 151/101, pulse is 86. Do I have pneumonia?
