Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 months ago):
Started 3 days ago. The second night of Saphris and Lithium. Doesn't occur during the day, which leads me to believe that the Saphris is the cause, because I take the Lithium morning and night.
From this study (2 years ago):
Restless Legs and Panic Attacks are sometimes still there even whild on medication. Migraine can only most of the time be stopped with a nubane shot. Preventative migraine medicines are not a help. I cannot take cortizone shots as it raises my blood sugar levels.
