Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • my husband has unbearable mornings. He says it is as if "he is coming out of his skin". severe depression lasts most of the day and taking more than he should of Ritalin gives him temporary relief, which lasts only about 30 minutes. Also I have noticed his t-shirts seem yellowed at the neck when he takes them off - he wears a fresh one every day. I am very concerned over his "panic" mode when he thinks he will run out of Ritalin as it is the only relief he feels he has. Also he has gained over 50 lbs and is 68 years old. I worry that he will get diabetes. I would greatly appreciate someone's opinion or suggestions. He does not have bi-polar, schitzophrenia, just severe depression (due to death of our only child) and gets panicky very easily. Thank you, concerned wife

    Hello! I am sorry to hear about the death of your only child. I was going to ask if your husband has ever taken clonapin for panic disorder. Mine use to be way out of control and took over my life even with xanax. My friend who was a nurse told me to try clonapin and it has had an amazing affect on me. I hope this helps. Donna
