Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I had a small amount of the hyperpigmentation between the nose and mouth (mustache area) before starting any of the drugs listed above, however, I was on Methadone at the time. That was about 3 years ago. Over the last 2 years it has spread to my cheeks & chin as well. Basically I have darkened skin in the areas of the face that a beard would cover, which causes me to look like I have a beard and mustache.

  • From this study (11 months ago):

  • I feel fine at rest. Once up and moving short time, dizziness and vision symptoms occur. Tremor occurs in neck...head going up and down...and in left arm more than right. Have had possible MS for a long time, now they think it is Ritalin causing the problem. stopped Ritalin and started Ativan. Same symptoms

    Surely this kid wasn't on all those stimulants at once. If so, the kid's parents should sue the doctor for malpractice/stupidity/attempted murder.
