Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • For the last 20-30 years I go through cycles where I am just too lethargic to function. I suffer from severe brain fog, lack of direction, sleep way too much, and am in an almost vegetative state and this could last anywhere from a few weeks to a few years. I do not believe it to be depression as I do not feel depressed. I feel unwell and quite often experience low grade fevers. I also have hemochromatosis and thyroid nodules, as well as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Bipolar Disorder and AV Nodal Re-entrant Tachycardia


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Although he has been taking Risperdal orally, the rash appeared after his first Consta injection
