From this study (3 days ago):
Noticed I started having dreams that were happening more often, and much wilder and more vivid than normal when I started taking the meclizine.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had a low thyroid in 2010, but was not really having problems. In 2012, I was prescribed venlafaxine and soon started having episodes of passing out, weight gain, photosensitivity, and my anxiety got much worse. Should I stop taking the venlafaxine.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
It appears that I had a low thyroid in 2010 but no medication, after taking venafaxine, I started passing out, photo sensitive, feeling dizzy and nautious, sometimes confusion so I made an appointment with the doctor and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I has been a year and the condition is not getting any better. Should I stop taking the venaflaxine.
