Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I tend to get intermittent nausea and dizziness throughout the day, feels similar to motion sickness. Sometimes, it wears off after I eat something and sometimes I have to lay down for bed or take a nap. This symptom will hit me whether I have or have not eaten a meal before taking the medication. The Dr. assured me that the Concerta is not interacting with the other medications so I'm attributing it to the Roxicet and Piroxicam, as I have not taken either medications before. I would rather not take the Roxicet at all but it seems to be helping quite a bit with my lower back pain.


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Callum on Dec, 12, 2012:

    I am a male, 15 years old, with ADHD inattentive, and a very serious back problem causing me constant pain and at times acute pain. I have been taking 30mg Ritalin for the past year now and i have 5mg of tylox for my back pain. Today has been the first day when i have needed to take the both of them at the same time and i am experiencing extreme attentiveness, to any minor detail and had just spent 1 1/2 hours folding sheets that were in the cupboard yet looked slightly messy so a completely rearranged and refolded about 50 blankets, sheets, towels, and pillow cases. I am also experiencing a slightly nauseating headache. I am generally a very laid back person who can be quite lazy and uninterested in most detail, big or small. Thank you for taking the time to read about my issues and any feedback, advice, and even opinions would be greatly appreciated and welcomed.


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Please help my husband. He's had 4 of 6 chemo treatments for sclc that has metastisized to liver. All of a sudden, he's begun hyperventilating and when blood gases were checked, found to have good O2, low CO2. His mid-point scans showed no visible signs of lung tumors and visibly shrunk liver lesions. He's 64, a lifetime smoker. His weight has dropped from 168 to 140. Thank you so much.

    (I'm wondering if it's the citalopram or ritalin or a combination of.)


    Melanie on Dec, 7, 2012:

    As a chronic hyperventilator myself, I can say with certainty that it's the Ritalin that's causing the hyperventilation. It's a stimulant, and stimulating the nervous system triggers hyperventilation.
