Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
Only taken at night, night mares almost every night, more then one bad dream, very vivid nightmares
From this study (5 days ago):
I use Melatonin Pura for about more than two weeks and from the last two weeks I noticed that there are white hard tiny bumps on my forehead mostly. I have had only one on my cheek that is there for 4 years. And the others on my forehead and cheeks are new and they appear every day. I think it can be from the Melatonin Pura because there was written on the drug manual that they are also good for anti aging, so the skin must renown to stay young and that can cause the Milia. Too much or too much unneeded renowned dead skin.
From this study (6 days ago):
Impulsiveness and noticeable personality changes during tx with Effexor. Did very irresponsible things very uncharacteristic of myself. Sx Stopped after tapering and d/c Effexor.
