Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 days ago):
I just need to know am i safe to take one while using the other
From this study (1 week ago):
Depression was extremely low until I got a migraine and took three doses of
Fiorecet in one day. Tiredness and extreme depression the days following.
From this study (1 month ago):
The nurses that gave me the depo said its a possibility that the depo caused the seizures because after getting it for two years the doctors office moved and I ended up being on it for four years with no breaks. About a year before I stopped taking it, I started having seizures in my sleep every two to three months. I have been off of the depo for almost a year now, and the seizures are happening more often, about 2-3 a month. I recently lost my work insurance due to the sale of the company. I am trying to get Medicaid, but it has been a fight. I would appreciate any help possible.
