From this study (2 weeks ago):
Checking to see if the Cardizem and aspirin are impacting the liver, which is reducing the creation of Vit d3, therefore increasing the breast lump.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Unsure if diarrhea is from new implanon replacement, or some other condition or parasite.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
Eyes would begin watering within ten minutes of standing after waking up. They would water to the point where tears would stream down my face for 10-20 minutes; once this stopped, the symptom wouldn't return again until the next morning. Eyes would rarely begin watering before standing or sitting. Symptom went away after dropping dosage from 50mg to 25mg.
