Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
I had a tooth pulled 4 days ago, the dentist prescribed acetaminophen-codeine ( Tylenol 3)for pain. I immediately noticed that my feet, ankle and legs swelled. I am going to discontinue taking this so my feet, ankles and legs will go down.
From this study (1 month ago):
Stopped the use of Axiron approximately 10 days ago. Have had two episodes of dizziness, rapid heat-beat and severe sweating lasting approximately 30 minutes each time. Heart rate returned to normal pattern after each episode. Stopped using Axiron because of the negative publicity by the parasite legal community.
From this study (1 month ago):
Body temperature has been 94.4-95.7 for most of the day with onset starting after an episode of intense sweating and feeling overheated with vertigo and weakness. After everything subsided, low temp of 95.5 still present with increased fatigue
