  • Hemiplegic migraine on tri cyclen
    On the second day of on pill break I suffered a severe hemiplegic migraine, for the first time in my life. I have not suffered a migraine for 4 years and this was out of the blue and very debilitating. I do not know whether to continue taking Tri Cyclen after this..

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I've previously been on both Adderall and Phentermine, at different times. I experienced very drastic and noticeable effectiveness. The phentermine helped with weight loss significantly and the Adderall greatly increased my energy levels, self-confidence, elevated mood, and higher concentration and brain activity. I was not on any other medications at the time, though I did need to take melatonin occasionally to help me sleep. Now, I had not been on Adderall or phentermine for about a year, but I was put on Adderall again several months ago. This was about a month after my brother died, so obviously I was experiencing (and still am) grief and depression. I was put on 40mg (twice as much as I used to be on) of Adderall in addition to seroquel XR and Lamictal. I felt like a slug all the time, I felt physically hungrier, and lethargic and apathetic. The adderall did nothing to help these symptoms. I am now on 60mg of Adderall and 37.5mg of Phentermine for weight loss and neither have shown any affectiveness, mentally or physically. My appetite is just as bad, and my brain isn't functioning fast at all. None of the affects of adderall I used to experiences, like increased energy levels, elevated mood, decreased appetite, increased brain activity, and increased self-confidence are present now, and I'm on more adderall than I was on before AND phentermine at the same time!! What's going on?? Both my ADD and weight gain are causing me to become increasingly self-conscious and depressed. Also, it doesn't help that my ridiculous amount of mood stabilizers make me apathetic and detached. I'm under 18 so I'm required to take the medications prescribed to me, but I don't know what to do or why the stimulants aren't effective anymore. HELP!!

    Maybe the mixture of the two medications are like ruling each other out..because adderal should help with weight..I on the other hand take adderal an methadone which methadone increases weight gain..I was 120-125 then jumped to 160 in a few months now down to about 140-145..still not where I want an need to be..

    Just saying but u must have been taking vyvanse instead of adderall because the highest mg of adderall is 30mg. If u were taking 40mg and 60mg u must have been taking vyvanse which goes all the way up to 100mg
