Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 hours ago):
After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.
From this study (6 days ago):
I am concern about the interactions of all these meds. It appears that his pressure is now way to low 90/40 and he has frequent urination and the shakes. I think the combination of the Carvedilol and the Lisinopril are causing his pressure to go very low.
From this study (1 week ago):
