Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • Interaction between Geodon and Celexa, developed Long QT syndrome. STOPPED taking GEODON, reduced Celexa to 20mg QD. Chest pressure, rapid heartbeat resolved. Over the past year started having chest pain again, take Nitro for every episode. No diagnosed condition. Just found out that there MAY be interaction between Celexa and Plaquenil that could also cause Long QT. Celexa and Geodon by themselves both can cause Long QT. Can't quit taking Celexa. Plaquenil is least effective.

  • I only used the probiotic brand named "Culterelle" for one dose. 7 hours later I broke out in severe hives. I also had rubbed my hands on some carpet in a store which left my hands feeling like they had a film on them and one hour later the hives started. They were only on my arms and neck.
