Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 days ago):
I was given Synarel in the early 90s to try to treat my endometriosis .
Shortly after the treatment I was Hospitalized for my sugar being out of control
(I was in my early 30s) with no history of diabetes in the family.
I went from perfectly normal to total insulin dependency overnight. I was a normal person and within 2 weeks deteriorated to being insulin dependent.
I am sure it was the Synarel that ruined my life.
From this study (1 week ago):
Wake up cold and clothes damp and skin is damp. I have to change night clothes then go back to sleep
From this study (1 week ago):
After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.
