I would like to know the side effects of taking Depakote,Trazodone and Benadryl for almost two years while in jail because I don't remember the trail and was very sleeping during the trail my dad was there and I can"t re call him being there.
Can't describe odd feeling of my eyes though I sensed my pupils were dialated.
I am concerned about possible drug interactions.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):

The medicine my doctor has been having me take makes me moody, not wanting sex, tired, not hungry, among other things; I don't like how much this medicine has changed me and needed some help with research.
