Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
At night it happens, commonally known as "bed wetting". I am 41 years old, and it's been going on two weeks; I also suspect the Effexor for the diarrhea I've been having since the dose increase from 300mg to 450mg; that is right around the time the bed wetting started.
From this study (11 months ago):
dr. has stopped risperidone but symptoms persist.
From this study (1 year ago):
recently stopped taking klonopin and adipex.but will be restarting these medications soon.
