Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I wake up and feel like I'm going through withdrawals, take my Pristiq & unfortunately Ritalin (because if I don't I am physically ill for days).. anyway, sometimes after I take my morning pills I feel better, sometimes I don't. I'm always tired and yet even with my sleep pills I cannot fall asleep. I hate this medicated life. I want off this junk, but don't know how!

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I have not added any new meds extremely recently. Started taking Vyvanse 6 months ago, but I feel I have quite severe serotonin syndrome on and off recently. That may NOT be what it is, symptoms over the past few weeks are extreme jolts of hard to explain type of electricity. Just constant jolting feeling with every step. But not while sitting down AT ALL. Maybe even a touch of dizziness or vertigo feeling.
