  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • Have been on Metformin for just under 2 weeks. Stopped taking it today as since I began taking it, I have noticed mood swings, memory and cognitive impairment and a huge increase in paranoia and anxiety.

  • Started on doxycycline for possible infection. After about 7 to 8 days of doxycycline use, myasthenia symptoms became severe. Will discontinue use of doxycycline,
