    My insomnia was provoked by a 'medicine cocktail', prescribed medications that were contraindicated. I just had a rough experience with Serotonin Syndrome, grateful to be alive.

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can vyvanse cause ocd
    I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder 8 years ago and have been stable on my medications for 6 years now. Over the years I have discovered new issues such as social anxiety disorder and ADHD. I recently noticed over the past few months that I have obsessive-compulsive tendencies. These seem to be getting worse. Am I just being paranoid? Is this caused by one of my medications? Is this something I should talk to my doctor about? I don't want him taking away any of my current meds.

    Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • Through medical history research it has come to my attention that around the same time I was started having abcesses I was placed on Seroquel and Lithium. The Hidradenitis was not pubescent.

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • I am concerned with the effects Benadryl may have on the effectiveness of Lithium. Blisters are constantly showing up all over my body. I reduce the Lithium and they subside.
