Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • I was diagnosed as being bipolar 15 years ago. I have been stable and highly-functioning for a few years until Blue Cross Blue Shield decided they did not like my antipsychotic anymore, and refused to pay for it. I have been forced to suddenly change from the perfectly-balanced Abilify/Lamictal combination that has worked for years to Geodon. Right now, my mental state is that of a bipolar person who has not been medicated for a month, so I am quite frankly, unhinged. Another Doctor gave me a Medrol Steroid pack today for some sudden back pain, and it was not until after I took it that my kooked-out brain thought to read the medication insert. Now, I do not know if I am truly slipping even further from sanity, or if it is all in my head because the steroid can enhance existing mood instability. It doesn't help either that that steroid is also cautioned against for people with hypothyroidism, which I was diagnosed with 10 years ago. I truly need a voice of reason to tell me what is really happening now, because I am not capable of making an accurate judgment on reality anymore since my psyche meds were soooooo unnecessarily and suddenly changed.

No pain relief for my hips/ ...

  • Who cares about the patient?
    I can't believe I'm still alive but quality of life is greatly diminished and no one cares. Not one doctor cares about how this one dr. prescribed all these drugs over a period of 5 years and I lost everything. I flat-lined sept 18, 2005 and was told by dr there in er that I would live 1-5 years an ...

  • Celebrex and taste loss
    Following foot surgery, I have taken Celebrex for most of the last 4 months. I can no longer taste or smell. I just started a Z pack for a sinus problem and am hoping that will clear any infection that could be contributing to this loss. I have also stopped taking Celebrex in the meantime.
