Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Have had both knees replaced within the last 10 months. Had reaction to the pain meds Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and Tramadol with the first knee - very severe anxiety. Ended up in the mental health hospital and put on Remeron,(for sleep and PTSD) the Remeron causes restless legs so added Gabapentin 300mg at night, and also Buspar for anxiety. That was back in August 2014. I am still suffering much anxiety. Is worst in the morning, I get better late afternoon. I take the Naproxen and Buspar in the morning...starting to wonder if they are interacting!

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I have had problems with anorgasmia for months now. I have spoken with all of my doctors (GP, endocrinologist, urologist, psychiatrist and gynecologist)and no one seems to have an answer. My psychiatrist says that none of the medications that I am currently on are causing the problem and no one else can find a physical problem. Before this, I easily had orgasms and usually had more than one. The only other thing it might be is I have been using medical marijuana for 2 years now. I am wondering if that is the problem or maybe it is working synergistically with one of my medications. I am trying to quit t see if that works because nothing else has. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
