Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • After 6 hours I get nauseous and a migraine and throw up.


  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Started out with Prozac only, that was discontinued, other RX added and symptoms have become increasingly worse. Could it be a paradoxical reaction to one of the drugs?


  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I go to be with many meds, most actually cause sleepiness.6X's out of 10, I fall asleep immediately. Wake up an average or 4X's a night. I go to get a snack, due to a tongue disorder. I have terrible tastes and go for a sweet like a cookie. Get in bed and see cookie in the morning about 60% of the time. (Tragic if no cookies!) Wake up sleepy. Would roll over and fall back to sleep if not for Provigil, with some help from Concerta. Up and awake within 10 minutes. NOW with meds, increased body shaking and falling asleep when standing-pass out etc...Have no idea why all of a sudden. Diagnosis Narcolepsy. (I researched and maybe Oxyplexy?) Due for new sleep study 12/26/2013
