Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
I had a nap at 19:00 woke up at 20:00 with extreme heart rate. This has not happened before, at least not so extreme. Just a bit milder.
From this study (4 years ago):
I took the drug in the AM for two days Both days had nausea, rapid heart beat, virtigo and lethergy. I hoped these would subside with use, but on the night of the second day, I preceived faces of stuffed animals sneering at me. When I closed my eyes, masked faces were flying towards me. I had never experienced anything like this in my nearly 67 years. I still feel spaced out and tired and hope the drug gets out of my system soon.
I am glad so many get relief from this drug, but it may not be an appropriate drug for us older people.
