Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
Suspicion that general muscle pain is caused by meds. Both Tylenol and Tramadol are taken TID to QID rather than PRN.
From this study (2 months ago):
Has seizures that will not stop w/o intervention. Er & ICU each time he has one. Aprox ever 3 month or aftera fall on head, Memory loss & confusion increase after the seizure due to seizure activity or ? meds used. Seems to lose more memory each time. Balance is poor, loss of taste since on the meds. the more meds he takes the more symptoms. Posture also worse the more he takes. If he does not take the meds he will have more seizures. No anti seizure drugs have been w/o side effects.
From this study (3 months ago):
While on meds I am totally normal, nobody notices my PD. When off I become a very impaired person with a hunched gait, shuffling steps, very slow for every movement, droping thigs, etc.
