Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
Persistent discomfort; upper left abdomen
Craving alcohol (wine)
From this study (3 months ago):
He drank whiskey for many years but seemed to be in relatively good health. He was a non smoker and his only diagnosed health issues were high cholesterol and arthritis in both knees. He occasionally complained of being tired and had chronic hemorrhoids that didn't require medical attention. I found him dead on New Years Day. He was bloated twice his size and his lower extremities were black & blue. It did not appear that he struggled or suffered. He looked calm and his eyes were closed. Cause of death is inconclusive and I'm just trying to make some sense of all this. His disposition the last time I saw him 2 days before was very good. His death was very sudden and unexpected. He was 68 years old when he passed.
From this study (5 months ago):
No alcohol for 2 mths. Seroquel was helping me to sleep for 7-8 hrs. Since adding Campral and Strattera (11/27/13), I sleep 4-5 hrs. leaving me fatigued. Taking both meds. at bed time.
