From this study (18 hours ago):
Worse when lying down though twitch continues all over the body during waking hours too - neck to calves, not facial. Stopped taking Ambien Feb 15th 2014, this started immediately, the following day.
From this study (1 day ago):
I've been on antidepressants for 17 years. Various types but been on Setraline for about 4 years. Have had sudden urge incontanence for years on and off but now I seem to wet the bed 2-3 times per week. If I drink any alcohol then it nearly a definate that i would wet the bed. I just wondered if it could have anything to do with the medication I'm on?
From this study (1 day ago):
Went off ambien cold turkey and started on clonidine, went to arthritis Dr and said fibromyalgia and she put me on lyrics 50 Mg 3 times a day but pain is worse. I have to take 10/325 percoset that only helps a little.
