Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
wonder if any of these cased my gynocomastia at age of 15
From this study (4 weeks ago):
Incontinence is intermittent. I thought it was related to a UTI. But it has persisted for almost a year, on and off. It has been two months since intercourse. I assume I must rule out a UTI. I smoke an e cigarette which appears to have no effect, as I've used it the entire time since the incontinence first started and the incontinence symptoms have come and gone.
I am currently tapering off the paxil, hoping the incontinence will stop. The incontinence seems to get worse when I experience withdrawal symptoms suck as dizziness. Or this bizarre symptom that I can only explain as micro seizures. When the incontinence gets worse, I do not consume alcohol or soda. I try to drink a lot of water, juices and tea.
