Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Nightmares more frequently since starting Flecainide about 1 1/2 years ago. The dreams vary in intensity and seem to be less on days when I have been very active and tired at bed time.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Since being on Pradaxa I have extreme vaginal itching. I have no yeast infection or UTI

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • It seems that the side effects of the meds I take always seem to present other problems; in other words, more meds hit me with more problems. I really become upset when doctors don't understand what I'm saying or what I'm dealing with.

    Side effects of high doses of Lortab suck. You will feel sleepy. If you are taking it frequently, you will not want to eat. Feel somewhat depressed, yet it takes away the pain.
