Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
itching all day long, but worse at night, seems to accompany anxiety attacks
From this study (4 days 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 (1 week ago):
Should drink lots of fluids while taking this pill.
