Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Valium eased the milder symptoms that had been happening for a few years but adding the Buspar triggered something. It happened several months ago and since then I have problems consuming ANYTHING that alters serotonin levels. The doctors don't believe me but after 20 years on these kinds of drugs, I know better. I don't know if it matters if I put this here, but maybe someone is reading and can help me or maybe my insights might help someone else...

From this study (4 years ago):
I am convinced that all of this is a direct result of either the H1N1 or taking Tamiflu 75 mg. I have been to several hospitals and doctors and no one can tell me what has happened it is almost like having a stroke or TIA.
