Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I don't think I have completely recovered. When I started the medication, I almost immediately started noticing issues with difficulties urinating. I also noticed significant pressure in my prostate area. I have been off of the drug for 3 weeks now and still am noticing that I feel pressure down there as well as difficulty urinating. It has gotten much better, but 3 weeks out and I am getting scared of permanent damage.
From this study (1 month ago):
Symptoms getting old... Laxatives don't even work anymore, which is scary. I have no health insurance, self-pay for meds thru psychiatrist and have not had a medical physical in around 3-4 yrs. Have 7 yrs clean and sober, but wonder if previous alcoholism and long-term suboxone use have caused possible diabetes? I'm sick of peeing all night long, and always have to pee 30 min after I take sublingually, then again after another @45 minutes. Crazy. My hands look like lizards from being all dried out. Also, worried about the e-liquid I started 6-8 months ago being a diuretic? Symptoms became drastically worse after; however, I can at least BREATHE smoking it and don't want to stop!
From this study (2 months ago):
Not sure if I've done this right, but I'm experienceing severe lower back pain. Sciatica type pain, that started after an increase in the dosage of the Gabapentin I've been taking from 300mg 3x/day to 900mg 3x/day. What is the coelation, if any?
