Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Reflux disease has been ongoing for about 2 years infrequently, with the last 3 months being the most severe. It has been diagnosed in my family; father and relatives from father's side. Anxiety disorder was previously diagnosed but medication was ceased upon hospitalization and diagnosis of suicidal depression; Rx changed from 50mg Sertraline daily to 150mg Bupropion HCl daily (current). Anxiety has become more prevalent as classes have started back up again for the spring semester. Generally my anxiety comes in the form of mild, but multiple and recurring, "anxiety attacks" throughout the duration of the lecture or class, in which I experience: nausea, dizziness, "fight-or-flight" response, sweating, mild shortness of breath (not wheezing or loss of breath, but more like a "feeling like it's necessary to breath deeply through my mouth", presumably to calm down), feeling "singled out" by those around me (even though I know they aren't actually looking at me, it feels like they are), moderate feeling of confinement or necessity to leave the room and get some air, mild shakiness in hands, and a moderate feeling of "something bad might happen" as characterized by general anxiety disorder. I think it would be valuable to look into trying a short-acting anxiolytic, possibly from the benzodiazepine class, to alleviate these anxiety symptoms. Dry mouth occurs infrequently and is generally relieved (albeit, only for a short time) with water, milk, or low acid fruit juice. However, I have noticed that the dry mouth seems to be positively correlated with the moderate aphthous stomatitis (chancre sores of the mouth). While I believe the bupropion hcl and adderall to be responsible for my dry mouth aggravation, I also believe that the effectiveness of those two drugs on my ADHD and depression outweighs the negative side effects. It's just irritating and I would like to get rid of that side effect if possible, rather than carry a water bottle around 24/7.

    It sounds like you are suffering from rebound headaches. Or rebound migraines.when u get them several times a day every day. You take medicine for them your body rebounds .. I know it don't make much sence. Ask your Dr if u get true migraines.. to give u 15 liters of oxygen, with full face mask with rebreather, BUT DO NOT USE MORE THEN 15 MINS** COULD BLOW YOUR LUNGS** this is what they told me..its 100% o2 .I have passed out on my migraines, & used half a tank.. it was dangerous.. but the oxygen has been a life savior.. u can feel your migraines lifting away in a min.. the pain gets better.. @ first it takes 1-2 mins.. after using it several times a day & every day .(when I get my clusters/bonds ) I have to use for 15 mins. When that fails .. I either need to go to the hosp for DHE, but if I took imitrex they can't not mix the 2. So I get depokote iv. & take the 500mg bid for 5 days ..that stops the cycle
