Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 months ago):
Symptoms vary, but throat swelling has worsened. Each time medication is adjusted, symptoms increase. Overdose on Levothyroxine (double dosage) was severe enough to cause inability to walk barely a few steps, followed by diarrhea, stomach cramps and flu like symptoms that lasted a week or more.
From this study (1 year ago):
Noticed the Adipex gave me energy, my severe fatige was just about gone but began having headache which last longer then usual. However, after about a week of using adipex, the good effects, like energy the whole day tapers down and isn't as effective as when you 1st take it.
From this study (4 years ago):
I am a very active 63 year old woman. Most of my friends marvel at my energy level. (at least, they did until two months ago) Had breast cancer in 2001 with mastectomy and chemo.
Developed chemo induced cardiomyopathy 7 years ago. Took beta blocker and ace inhibitor for a couple of years. E-F increased from 20 to 45%. Felt so good and didn't like the side-effects of emotional flatness and loss of libido (vaginal dryness) so stopped. Have felt really great until two months ago.
Cardiomyopathy has returned in 2010. E-F is 35%. Shortness of breath, tired, not able to walk my 3 miles a day. I am usually a very active person, but this has slowed me down again.
Am hoping that a return to the meds will help me boost my E-F back to 45%. Really don't like the side effects.

- Metoprolol & lisinopril, vs. carvedilol, lisinopril and warfarin
Lisinopril 25mg provokes horrific depression, despair, inability to navigate back to upbeat, creative state and fear for survival. Dizziness, crippling vertigo, etc every time I move from rest. Reducing dose to 2.5mg makes side effects tolerable, with no noticeable change in therapeutic effect.
