Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 days ago):
After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Extended bleeding, passed very large mass
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I receive enough benefit from taking these medications, with varying results depending on circumstances to justify their continued use.
