Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • I take Prozac for depression, Atenolol Chlorthalidone for hypertension, and Valium as needed for stress. I also Vasovagal when stressed, which is becoming more frequent as I get older. Can I take a Valium in preparation for stressful situations, or does that exacerbate my tendency to Vasovagal under stress?

    try Acupuncture or buy a Acupuncture machine which has pads to stimulate your nerves. Your sure to quit using antidepressants and be stable for the rest of your life but treatment should be done for about 6 months or more and may differ case to case.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Had Respiratory Distress, coughing, clogged nasal passages, an extreme skin rash and problems sleeping.
    After telling my neurologist these symptoms worsen after I get a needle of Rebif he didn't really believe me because I was taking Rebif for about 8 years with no to little side effects. I was admitted to the hospital for Respiratory Distress and taken off Rebif. I still have cold like symptoms and my white blood cells have increased over the 2 1/2 month I have been taken off Rebif. My doctors and I are still trying to definitely confirm the reaction was to Rebif.
    I have had numerous blood tests, EKG, Pulmonary tests, allergy tests and chest x-rays.
