Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
Have been on Metformin for just under 2 weeks. Stopped taking it today as since I began taking it, I have noticed mood swings, memory and cognitive impairment and a huge increase in paranoia and anxiety.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had a virus infection, a urinary tract infection, and now I believe I have impetigo a long with it. Also, I can't remember for sure, but I believe I have missed one period, and there has been random bits of blood coming out, but no actual period yet. Also, I took antibiotics, but I have been off of the medication for a few weeks now. I got better, but now it seems to be coming back a bit.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Suffering for six weeks now with stiffness in hips and back of knees/ top of calves
