Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 months ago):
Depression was extremely low until I got a migraine and took three doses of
Fiorecet in one day. Tiredness and extreme depression the days following.
From this study (2 years ago):
I need to sleep many hours. I am not depressed. this is different. I am on Thyroid medication. Thyroid levels are fine. Just started Levothyroxine after no more Armour Thyroid. Eye pain is every so often and deep and sharp -- one eye only - separate from migraines. Nausea is new. Also more frequent extreme episodes of bowel issues and diarrhea -- feels like an allergic reaction.
Steve on Jan, 6, 2013:
Why do you say no more Armour? ARMOUR IS READILY AVAILABLE FROM MANUFACTURER FOREST LABS. IT IS SAFE NATURAL and effective. Sounds like you are having an allergic reaction to the man made synthroid medication. Check out stop the thyroid madness Web site. Synthroid only has one hormone t4 that is supposed to be converted to t3. In many people it doesn't convert.
From this study (5 years ago):
Been on the Topiramate for 2 months and on the Paroxetine for 2 days.
