My eyes start watering a lot about 30 minutes after taking melatonin. They are not watering when I wake up the next morning.
From this study (4 days ago):
After taking amiltriptilyne for 2 months the burning vulva /pelvic pain is reduced upto 20 % but what other medication is there for 0% pain? And what has caused the Lichen? I have taken only one tablet of Provera 2 years ago and the menstruation stopped at once at that time, the menopause was there at once. Since that time there was no menstruation any more, since august 2012 i was diagnosed for Lichen Sclerosus.
From this study (5 days ago):
I have had hypersecretions from benzodiazepines before. but now I'm on fluconazole for severe cough and symptoms of thrush. I believe it's actually a side effect of klonopin and provera. My cbc, chest xray and barium swallow were all normal.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
In late October 2010 I suffered a massive stroke of the right MCA of my brain. I had 3 blood clots in the rt. side paralizing the whole Lt. side of my body speach, facial, mind. It was just terrifying. The team of ER,Surgeon's and Neurologists say was caused with out a doubt from Depo-Provera birth cantrol. I am a 25 year old female with no prior health history. Dont smoke dont drink. Two healthy deliveries both of my children. If it was not for my daughter and husband finding me I would have died laying on the floor so completely helpless. It was the first and last depo shot ever. We sould get together on this one and save some lives, some mothers, wives etc.... young gilrs stay away from this method there are other ways!
