Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • While I had the flu I began using guaifenesin and Sudafed to try to relieve the symptoms of sinus discharge, post-nasal drip and phlegm, and cough. I have mostly recovered but still cough a lot due to excessive sinus drainage and phlegm in my lungs.

  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (HPPD)like symptoms to include:
    --specks of light
    --snow & rain affect
    --trails following objects in motion
    --halos or auras
    --illusions of motion in a static environment
    --distortions in dimension
    --heightened awareness of motion.
    Occurs in dark or semi-dark rooms but clears in light where minor motion and distortion is noted when staring ahead. A mask descends over my face when staring ahead (maybe inner-ocular-lenses affect (cataract surgery)?). In some cases, get affect that I can feel geometric objects and fish-like or distorted objects. Started when given Lamotrigine & Quetiapine. Doctor has increased dosage of Lamotrigin, stopped Quetiapine and added Risperidone: snow/rain effects have significantly increased at night before falling asleep. Severe snow/rain affect occurs when I wake up early in the morning in semi-dark.
