  • I would like to know if the medical treatment i observe for 11 years might influence the apparition of chilaidity's syndrom.

    My medical treatment : abilify 15mg
    carbamazepine LP 400mg (2*200mg)
    paroxetine 20mg

    Abdominal meteorism began after the first year of these drugs, increased during several years at a very high level then stable for 4 or 5 years approximatively. Occasionnaly, I notice a high flatulency.

    Despite of activated wood charcoal during 2 or three weeks (several tries), meteorism hasn't decreased at all.

    For information, my bmi = 24.13 (body mass index)
    my fmi = 22.64 (fat mass index)
