Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
Immediate reaction to injection. 7x8" rash which turned into infection and two weeks later, having external stabbing and likely scarring of 2x3" size
From this study (2 months ago):
I take Prozac for depression, Atenolol Chlorthalidone for hypertension, and Valium as needed for stress. I also Vasovagal when stressed, which is becoming more frequent as I get older. Can I take a Valium in preparation for stressful situations, or does that exacerbate my tendency to Vasovagal under stress?
