  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • At first I thought this was gas/indigestion and treated it as such, but nothing would change. I rarely eat fried foods, and have extremely good cholesterol labs. The last attack was so painful I could not catch my breath and I could not walk on my own. I did not have a fever, but I thought somehow my appendix ruptured and was poisoning my stomach because I just wanted to pass out. I was shocked to learn I had gallstones and an enlarged gallbladder. I've had these symptoms for over 6 or 7 years. I was pregnant with twins in 2007, and would blame the twins for getting "too high" into my ribs when I had this pain with them, but I bet it was my gallbladder flaring up, even then. At that time, I would have been on Zoloft for 4 years.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • After taking Keppra for 9 months following a grand mal seizure and subsequent brain tumor removal, I suddenly developed extreme OCD. I literally count everything. When I try to read,the phrases repeat in my head. The simplest task has become a monumental struggle. My physician has had me on 50 mg Sertraline for3 weeks now, along with Xanax. The OCD is still intense.
