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 ??

  • Some of the symptoms and drugs I added are not 100 percent correct I just could not find them in the drop downs. I just selected what I thought was closest.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Took accutane in 2004 for cystic acne. Had tried all OTC at that point.
    Had dry skin like paper, nose bleeds, depression, and very moody. Off after 6 months.

    Was diagnosed in 2012 with Myofascial and Fibromyalgia. Always wondered if accutane had something to do with it. Cymbalta and the other medication I believe has caused over 30lbs of unintentional weight gain in 6 months.

    Still have moderate pain varies on day to day basis.
