Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I started taking Minocycline to treat my moderate acne on my cheeks. After about three weeks, I started feeling swollen lymph nodes and I thought it was normal for it is a possible side effect. As it continuously got worse, I went to the doctor to get checked about 1 1/2 months after I started the treatment with Minocycline. After many tests and later a biopsy, I was diagnosed with lymphoma.

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • Acne isn't severe in that it is vast, but what I do get is large spots that resemble whiteheads, but deep beneath the surface. They stick around for months without ever changing or coming to a head. Sometimes they itch.

    My idea of severe weight gain: 25lbs in 6 weeks.

    If they are painful and around the jaw/neck, they may be swollen lymph nodes.

    I have also noticed that I have been getting hard pimple like bumps on my face and neck. They never come to a head can be painful to touch and they get big like a boil but they don't go completely away they shrink down to where you can't notice the huge bump but when I rub my fingers over the area you can still feel a little bump under the skin almost like a cyst! What exactly are they and how can I stop getting them?

  • From this study (7 days ago):

  • Although I am now 65 and I have been taking 3000 mg of Keppra every day for the past 4 years since my seizure, I have experienced a diminished libido and an even more absence of erections. I am in fairly good condition for my age and prior to this medication I have never had any sexual issues in the bedroom. I can not believe that this is all due to my age, and not the Keppra as my neurologist has claimed; easy for him he's not the man suffering the humiliation and depression and anxiety of not being able to perform. But then he's also half my age and doesn't have any issues, or does he? Please help!
