Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I'm grinding my teeth at night while sleeping. This is happening on a regular basis and is causing tooth sensitivity and headaches. I feel like I never get a refreshing night's sleep. I tire very easily and am always battling with depression. The bruxism really concerns me and i would like it to stop. I've tried using mouth guards but either cannot fall asleep with one in or I spit them out during my sleep. This condition is very frustrating!

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • As soon as I started on Zyprexa I started gaining weight and was not able to lose it. The medication did work for my depression for a while, until it plateaued. Right now the side effects outweigh the benefits. My physician has started to taper me down. I went from 5 mg to 2.5 mg and the day of the change I got my period, which I haven't had ever since I started on Zyprexa about 6 months ago. My hope is I can start losing the added weight soon and will no longer suffer from breast pain and dry mouth.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I have been taking generic Wellbutrin XL 450mg/day for years. Recently, after a depressive episode and a hospital stay, they added Lexapro 10 mg/day. I recently started a factory job where Isopropyl Alcohol is used for cleaning. After 7 hours of cleaning, which included breathing the vapors and ingestion through the skin, my breathing has become very labored. Should I continue to work in a situation where Isopropyl Alcohol is used while remaining on these meds?
