Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 hours ago):
I am still taking phentermine and I do not drink a lot of water. I have been constipated and do go, but I feel more has to come out and it won't. I also have slight pain on my sides. One day it will be lower right, the next upper, or around the lower back. Could I have an obstruction? Can I fix this myself?
From this study (19 hours ago):
Pervasive developmental disorder...autism...unexplained g.i. Issues with multiple procedures only finding inflammation...prescribed sucralfate after severe vomiting which seemed to help for awhile, but cycle seems to be starting all over again...vomits often after eating
From this study (4 days ago):
I know that methadone can cause nodding. I am way beyond that stage of MMT though. I can admit that at certain points I was a horrible patient! I used everything under the sun to supplement getting high. I've been on doses of 345mgs, 230mgs, Split doses, Liquid, & Tablets. I've been on the dose I'm at now which is a split dose & the lowest dose I have been on, for well over 1 year. I have had clean drug tests I don't use any illegal drugs, I don't drink.
