From this study (2 years ago):
Is it normal for these meds to cause drowsiness and weight gain? I've put on 15 lbs in 2 weeks.
From this study (3 years ago):
I have been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver, hepatitis c - type 1, schizoaffective disorder, major depression, panic disorder, diabetes, and varicies in my esophogus.I fall a lot, sit and stare, drool, have no desire or motivation to do anything, have no sex drive, increased ammonia levels frequently, I still have a flat affect but it is a lot worse and I still hear voices that tell me to kill myself and the voices are coming from hallucinations of dead family members. I take so many medicines that I don't know if I am having side effects or if my conditions are worse.
From this study (5 years ago):
Taking a combination of drugs like this makes me concerned about how they may interact and create side effects that I do not want or did not expect.
