Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
Feeling sick for over a month of taking advil liquid gels for 3 days every 4 hours on an empty stomach.
From this study (3 days ago):
My 19 yr old daughter is a Type 1 diabetic since the age of three. She has been having dizzy spells where she says she feels nauseous and like she's going to pass out about once a day around dinner time. Does not correlate with blood sugars but her blood pressure drops to around 94/72 with a heart rate of 122. Could this be related to Prozac that she's been on for years?
