From this study (1 year ago):
No one else in family of 9 has dark circles. Only began noticing dark circles about a year after starting Atenolol.
Couldn't tolerate stimulants prior to taking an SSRI. Any Long Acting medication does not affect me longer than 2-3 hours. Tests indicated that my serotonin is less than 10.
Just wondering if Ritalin could cause a rise in my Creatinine level and if the antidepressants were causing a lot of weight gain.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
