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):
I just look into this Nystatin drug they had been giving me while at a Nursing home for the Bacteria or Oral Thrush. I finally had to take Imaitrex to help it go away. I am calling my Dr in the morning to stop taking this medication. I was throwing up because of this medicine. Why no warning label?
