Comments from related studies:

  • 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.

  • I JUST STARTED TAKING THE SIMVASTATIN AND WELLBUTRIN A MONTH AGO. I TOOK THE ALLEGRA D FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS MORNING. 3 DAYS AGO, I HAD A PANICK ATTACK (UNEXPECTED- FIRST ONE EVER) AND AGAIN THIS MORNING. BOTH TIMES I WAS RELAXED AND SITTING, NO STRESS, NOTHING TO TRIGGER THE ATTACKS. BOTH WERE EXTREMELY BRIEF- 5-10 SECONDS.
