Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
Have been on Metformin for just under 2 weeks. Stopped taking it today as since I began taking it, I have noticed mood swings, memory and cognitive impairment and a huge increase in paranoia and anxiety.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
symptoms became pronounced immediately after introduction of olanzapine (5mg), No previous history of paranoia
From this study (2 months ago):
After these symptoms became extreme I began seeing a family doctor for them, different from my Suboxone prescribing doctor. He started me on 50mg per day of Prestiq and .5mg of Xanax twice a day. Soon after the visit with my family doctor, I realized the Suboxone was the cause of the anxiety aggravation and paranoia. On the next visit with my Suboxone prescribing doctor, I began a taper and noticed the symptoms lessening as my dose dropped until finally off.
