From this study (5 days ago):
Suicide idiation was reported to medical people some six months ago but nothing was done and the medicine was continued despite talk of suicide increasing.
Nicole on Jul, 24, 2014:
55 year old male,took his life after taking medication for about 3-4 months. In his total 30 plus years of taking Anti psychotic medications, has he ever,never displayed a history of self mutilation, or thoughts of suicide. Lots of questions regarding if his doctor made clear the side effects, or if followed up with blood work was done. Very, very angry and grieving my uncle's death. This will not be another stat for study purposes. It will be for change. And accountability.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
The only new medication I started using was the Cyclobenzaprine prescribed by my doctor after I told her about my back pain on June 29 I noticed one red patch on my stomach area that looked like ringworm or something then a few days later I got more of them on my stomach, side and chest area it started to itch I called my doctors office and my regular doc was out of town I saw another doc in July who diagnosed the patches as eczema and prescribed some steroid cream,It puzzled me because I have never in my life deal with skin problems like eczema..The cream prescribes it seems to heal the sores n relieve some itching but now I am getting hives or some really itchy red bumps on the back of my legs and thighs I thought it was coming from a chair I always sit in so I check the chair I saw no bugs, fleas, mosquitos or anything but I have this intense itching at night and wake up with the rash spreading from one leg to the other I am starting to think its a side effect of the Cyclobenzaprine that was prescribed to me for my back pain?
