Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
I know that methadone can cause nodding. I am way beyond that stage of MMT though. I can admit that at certain points I was a horrible patient! I used everything under the sun to supplement getting high. I've been on doses of 345mgs, 230mgs, Split doses, Liquid, & Tablets. I've been on the dose I'm at now which is a split dose & the lowest dose I have been on, for well over 1 year. I have had clean drug tests I don't use any illegal drugs, I don't drink.
From this study (4 months ago):
Dizziness and nauseau did not go away until the drug was completely out of my system.
From this study (11 months ago):
I gained weight on citalopram, and was prescribed ability on top of it, which made my normal weight of 135 go up to 160. I stopped taking ability, and was recently prescribed Vyvanse, which works amazingly for me as a writer. I was always ADD but didn't realize I was different. Since taking vyvanse, my weight has increased again.
