Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 days ago):
seizure induced, other medications including Ativan were not given
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I completed the antibiotic, and since its completion, I am seeming to have side effects continuing to appear.
I have a history of eczema, and my skin has been very itchy. I started using a tea tree oil soap, and question if this is also taking away "good" flora and is exacerbating the yeast on my skin.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Knee pain, sudden onset, no prior trauma or exercise
