- My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.
- Living with chronic pain while battling with psychological disorders. (1 response)
I have had back problems since 2004. I have been on pain management since 2007. A year ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Not only does fibromyalgia cause deep wide spread pain, it also makes me feel lethargic, fluish, and greatly effects my daily life. I also have some psychological conditions as well. Mostly due to a traumatic event experienced as a child.
- Savella & synthroid hell! (3 responses)
Within 15 minutes of taking Savella, the heat starts in my face and the sweating begins unrelentlessly. And the palpitations begin right away and later will be strong enough to wake me from sleep. Its horrible! I cant go anywhere! I cant tolerate any additional heat anywhere! And if I go out, I must bring a towel with me... it overwhelms me! I hate this!!

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I went to a Rheumatologist and he said I have Hashimoto disease and said its not serious enough to take meds for. The test is - Thyroid Peroxidase Antiboties - my number is 363. It says that is should be <9. I was wondering if these medications I am on could be causing abnormal reading. I do have severe inflammation due to serious injuries.

Please get treated! Go to a functional medicine doctor...those antibodies are way too high, no matter what the root cause...pick up the book Stop the Thyroid Madness, as well as The Root Cause by Isabela Wentz. Also check out Mary Shomon. There are FB Support Groups as well, including Hashimoto's 411, For Thyroid Patients Only, several others to find information and support, where we are all Hashi's sufferers. Please be your own best advocate and get to the right doctor (not an endo despite what you may have been led to believe) who will actually help you! I am a long time Hashimoto's patient, trust me!
